I don't like to respond to your posts since you are a very bad person, but in this case I just have to ask where in the world you got your numbers from? They certainly were not covered in the link you provided.Back to the subject. The federal government gave the states a total of $393,981,456.00 for "migrant student education" and $733,530,000.00 for "English learner education" in 2011. This is just the federal spending directly to immigrant children who are primarily illegal or children of illegals born in the U.S. At a time when the federal government is eliminating grants for math and science and teacher improvement among others grants to migrant worker and English learner education have not been touched. How can Obama chide the states for cut backs while eliminating federal grants for real education for American children and not touching grants targeted at illegal aliens?
Seriously $393 Billion for "migrant student education" and $733 Billion "English learner education".
In 2011 the US spent a total of $159.3 billion for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Combined.
Do you really expect anybody to believe it cost more than 4.5 times the cost of TWO WARS to teach English to anybody and nobody but you noticed this?
