I think they put this crap in the paper just to make us mad. I'm glad our government can afford to bring these teachers up from Mexico while our local teachers are wondering if they are even going to be able to keep their jobs with all the cuts to education.

Is there a program for White kids where teachers from all over Europe come to help them learn about their heritage?

Exactly!

Like there aren't Mexican-AMERICAN teachers who could do the job...if this program should exist at all (we're all "equal," right?).

Why not put them on a bus and have them spend the summer in Mexico?

Ukiah Unified test scores have fallen to such an extent that the state is stepping in and teachers are having to be retrained and pass new tests to keep their jobs. Apparently, these teachers who have been sending kids to colleges and universities for years suddenly are unqualified to teach. Test scores have dived. The same teachers are teaching the same subjects as they have for years. What has changed? I guess Ukiah teachers have lost the ability to teach in the last few years. We must forget the college-bound kids and those who excel and teach just the basics to the masses for test results. And feed them. And don't offend any future democrats in the process.

Great, now we're importing mexican teachers to educate the anchor babies on a non-American culture. How about you embrace America and our culture or go the hell back to Oaxaca if you want to learn about Mexican crap.

Relax. Anyone in the US can go to Mexico and demand a free education, medical, eye, pregnancy and prescription care, auto insurance and transportation.

Until you have had enough and demand something change and do something about it, nothing will change.

You get what you get.

Implementing programs for "minority" residents is completely acceptable. At least it's considered to be politically correct.
Yet....did anybody ever implement a summer program for "white" only? Do we have a "United Caucasian College Fund"?
NO!!!!
Even the uttering of such a suggestion would be bring about finger pointing and racist suggestions.
How about all the immigration non-enforcement? Protests bring about hispanic (primarily) protests and waving of the Mexican National Flag. Why wave the Mexican flag if you are wanting to stay and live within the American boundaries, live off the American system?
Get real. Equal programs for those who are here legally, paying taxes and being productive members of our society!
Our tax monies are being squandered upon illegals who are unable to speak english and yet the children (through no fault of their own) are thrust into the school systems and given special priorities, special classes and using our tax dollars that are ever precious at this time of budget cuts.

How in the world can Nuestra Casa fund this program when they are broke after illegally using the Cancer society's money and having to repay them? Please don't tell me this is tax dollar funded when we are closing our schools and laying off american teachers!
how about

Precisely what we intend to do. We've obtained commitments from 3 contractors, so far, on the central coast. No papers, no job.

Just another step in the direction of California turning a completely Mexican state.. Our local and state government is ruining this state 100%. I am all for immigrants and all but c'mon, have some respect for the country that is welcoming you here and learn English, and then be an American, if you want to remain Mexican and speaking the language then stay the f--- in Mexico if it is so kick ass... I for one am tired of these people... yep I said these people.

I am shocked and dismayed. What has happened to our country since O'Bama has taken office? This is an invasion and no one in the federal government is helping. I am tired of going to Safeway and other stores here in Ukiah and hearing Spanish instead of English. The Anderson Valley just passed a 15 million dollar bond that raises taxes on property owners to rebuild their school. Do you know who is in the schools in the Anderson Valley? How about 90% illegals or anchor babies. Do you know how many people in the Anderson Valley there are that get to pay for this? About 1,000 people. So, how long does it take for the property owners, who are legal, hard-working American citizens, to pay for the illegal Mexicans to be babysat? Have we all lost our minds or just our country!

We've been sold out by our government.......... I am also sick of hearing Spanish in Safeway.Ross and every where else. I look them straight in the eye and say "welcome to America please learn English" I welcome any immigrant to this fine Country but please respect our culture and language or stay the hell out!

Do you realize that a contract in Mexico is not valid in English?

No government agency will even speak to you in English.

You take your driver’s test in Spanish..And Spanish only.....

If you find yourself in a court of law it is done in Spanish and if you need an English translator you pay for it as the court does not supply it….

I hear it every day…………..
To be able to vote you must be a citizen in the USA………..correct??
To be a citizen you must speak and understand English…….Correct?
Then why can you vote in so many languages?
Why would you spend so much money printing ballots in so many languages?

Oh well……………A different way of treating immigrants…………….LOL

Maybe the US should look south on imigration laws????

No problemo. I'm sure the great Mexican government is funding this program with Obamas backing since it is helping their citizenry.

If the people in the Anderson Valley didn't hire them, they wouldn't come there. ANd what does Obama have to do with it? He's responsible for a lot of disgusting and irresponsible stuff, but the illegals have been here long before Obama came on the scene.
