This doesn't include the taxpayer "freebies" and don't try to say it does. Talk with the 82 year old lady in the grocery store yestday still working. Her SS is less than her rent. She's who I feel sorry for not boat refugees, border jumpers or those who illegally enter in cargo containers!

Our leaders would rather an old woman go hungry than end this giving away of taxpayers money and healthcare to corrupt countries and their people. Our leaders of the past 45 years have a lot of explaining to do in Hell.

The school’s difficulties on standardized tests are “not necessarily the result of having so many Hispanic students,” said school board member Roger Meek, who represents the area around Alexander and other Westside schools of high Hispanic enrollment.“It’s the socioeconomic status.”
Of course socioeconomic status impacts test scores... and most of the COCKROACH INVADERS exist below the poverty line. If you exclude the scores of the COCKROACH kids, the school would have much higher test scores. But those invaders drag down the school and bring forth the penalties under No Child Left Behind.

Paul the American. Any idea how many hours would be used to school English only childen, instead of the B.S. that goes on? Our tax dollars are growing with kids learning less and I attribute it to the kids of illegals. Call me biased, a racist, etc. I simply don't care.

The answer will vary state by state and even district by district. Some allow bilingual education for a student 4 to 6 years with one half to the full day going to catering to a COCKROACH in their native tongue.

Across the US, schools spend between 8 to 12 thousand US taxpayer dollars per student. Those ESL students can cost 40 to 50 percent more to educate due to materials in another language and hiring special teachers who can teach the leech in their own language.

In summary... the parents don't pay their fair share of school taxes (through property taxes) and their COCKROACH KIDS eat up more resources in the schools... end result... they drag down our schools and our children to their level.

We spend an inordinate amount of taxpayer funded dollars towards ELL students. They may make strides for a few years, but they usually go home to families where illiteracy and ignorance abounds. They begin to struggle in their studies, and have a hard time keeping up with their legal counterparts. Truthfully, most illegals' children have no desire to aspire to much of anything except joining the local gangs and having too many babies. Our children are seeing many electives being eliminated in order to free up money for more foolish programs that usually have poor results. Schools become over-crowed and the need to build bigger facilities always looms in the future. The problem is that as Americans are being aced out of jobs, their tax base is also diminishing. Illegals pay little to no taxes, so where will the money come from? Certainly not from the greedy corporations who utilize illegals, nor will our pandering politicians put THEIR money into these projects...where will it come from, folks? They can't get much more out of cash poor Americans...after all, we need to tend to our own families first and foremost. How about teaching these illegals to be personally presonsible for their own families, let's demand an end to birthright citizen ship. They need to keep their paws out of our coffers...period.

Hispanics account for most of school growth, least of school tax base growth, and most of scholastic underachievement. Racing towards the third world!!!
