The racist LaRatsa and Ben Steins FAIR, appeared on C-Span today. It was very clear that the US Government is not making immigration reform a priority. Thank God for Ben Stein. He keep's thing's in perspective. Reminded all Americans The Hispanic or Mexican Vote didn't factor in to Obam's re-election as they would like you to think. And Castro, LaRatza's Spoke person got alot of anti illegal immigration calls. It wasn't funny. Many Blacks were calling in complaining we so not need any more uneducated, low paying job's being given to adult illegals before Legal Americans have a chance at it. It was very interesting, and if Castro is an American citizen, she acted more like and illegal alien Mexican than an American. Don't Panic...Many are watching our back's. But we cannot relent to the lies LaRatza's spewing. What a joke.It's sad to see who represent's the Mexican's here. They sound way more racist than many on this Forum.

I watched Wahington Journal this morning when it had Fawn Joohnson on. I got tired of watching her facial expressions when a caller brought up valid points about this entire debacle. I guess I should have waited until they brought the other speakers on.

Now man up and start refuting my posts, if you can.

Education Gap

THE REALITIES OF EDUCATION IN LATIN AMERICA

Without a high-level education, Latin American children will continue to
lack the skills necessary for entering the workforce and participating in
the increasingly competitive global economy.

a.. 50 million people in Latin America cannot read or write.

b.. Latin Americans receive an average of six years of schooling, compared
to nine-and-a-half years in the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation
and Development) countries.

c.. Nearly one-third of children in primary school in Latin America repeat
a grade. The additional cost to the region's education systems has been
estimated at $4 billion per year.

d.. Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru rank behind Uganda, Zambia, Botswana
and Burundi in the quality of their math and science education.

e.. In Mexico, only 13% of adults receive a high school diploma versus 87%
of American adults.

f.. Over 50% of Mexican and Brazilian 15-year old youth are functionally
illiterate and thus unable to compete in today's economy.

CONTRIBUTORS TO LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION CRISIS

1. HIGH DROP-OUT RATE THROUGHOUT LATIN AMERICA

The heart of the problem is the drop-out rate -- children living in poverty
are not staying in school.

a.. 92% of Latin American children begin primary school, but only 32%
continue on to secondary school (the U.S. equivalant of middle/high school).
Even fewer ultimately graduate.

b.. Approximately 40 million children and adolescents in Latin America
drop out of school to live or work on the streets each year.

c.. It is estimated that 95% of children have access to school in Brazil,
but only 59% of them finish the eighth grade.

d.. It is well established that school dropouts have worse outcomes,
including in terms of mental health status, than do those youth who stay in
school.

2. INEQUALITY IN LATIN AMERICA

Unequal societies are less efficient at converting growth into poverty
reduction. In Latin America, the education gap mirrors the income gap
between rich and poor.

a.. Levels of inequality in Latin America are the highest in the world --
at least one in three households and two in five people live below the
poverty line.
a.. 220 million Latin Americans (about 44% of the region's population)
live on less than $2 per day. Over half of them are children.
a.. In Brazil, children in the bottom income quartile complete an average
of four years of school versus over ten years completed by children in the
top income quartile.

3. LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION SPENDING

Despite increases in past years, spending on elementary education is still
relatively low throughout the region.

a.. Per capita spending on primary education in Latin America still
averages only 15% of U.S. levels.
a.. Latin American universities, which serve less than 10% of the
population, receive a disproportionate share of education dollars compared
to primary education.(In Brazil, public universities have only 2% of all
pupils, but receive 25% of all federal education funds.

haha i cant believe how ignorant people can be. since day one, when an inmigrant arrive he start improving our economy by buying goods, all those sold goods generated profits for american companies. At the same time the state tax every purchase, so that inmigrant help your state economy. welfare? Are you reading what you wrote? Welfare is a benefit that can be used only by citizens, one of the requirements is o have a valid SSN, so juanito cant walking with his homemade SSN and apply for it without being arrested and deported. Since day one i worked two jobs, and i never asked for help. Today, nine years later, i am the owner of two companies with 29 fulltime employees. if i can do that without a SSN you should be able to do more with a SSN than written .... comments.
.
wrongo, day one with no job they get on welfare, snap, section 8, ssi. start sucking down citizen taxpayer funds while baby mama is spitting out an anchor baby for free at the hospital. sure, they spend the money given them, not earned.

You don't exist down there. I just got verification from a friend who's an agent for La Federal Judicial in Tijuana, reporting that you don't exist. Your signal is coming from the US.

I knew it.... You're a fraud and a liar.

HEY PEOPLE LOOK AT THIS!
