Make the school system privatized and I think that most of the who pays for what problems go away.

You want an education then you pay your way. That is not to say that the companies that run the individual schools wouldn't have a say in what they want from people to attend or if they have programs. Taxing for "generalities" seems like a horrible way to invade our privacy and dictate what should be a choice for parents.

I just feel that a majority of the problems with the education system come from it not being a competitive private industry.

There r many immigrants here, and regardless of what u think most don't come from Mexico. Most are actually Guatemalan, the difference is there r smaller in stature and smaller hands and feet. Not to say there is anything wrong with them.
We as American r one step story of becoming a nazi nation. Why not help out all. Would we not go to any extreme to feed r families? I know I would. Now I am not saying all r here like that but there r many. Why not judge each case on its own merits and history.
Whether immigrants r here or not we will owe taxes and pay regardless. We should stop using ignorant blind hatred as a scapegoat.
Why not look at our white collar crimes that r using tax dollars. Look at front page of Lexington herald from 6-3-12. That is a prime story of our tax dollars being used for illegal purposes.
Yes all should be legal but why use slander, profanity, etc... Why not make the path to legal status not so bumpy.
There is room for all of us here. Everyone be nice...WWJD?

Usually, ignorance is shown when is displayed when you call "label" people something when you know nothing about them. Do you even know where the words hillybilly or redneck originated from? I do and so do many others and we gladly wear those names with pride.
Since the only illegals in this area are Mexican's, why would KIA9 be talking about anyone else? We know there are others but there are none in our area and yes this is a poor area. It is hard to school our own children, we can't afford to pay for all the illagals children's in our area.
It's apparent you are not on this forum much. If you only pass by to insult us, just pass by.

We should take care of America's kids first. English is what America is supposed to speak!, I go places and have to ask myself ' where am i'? when i go out in public, because of so many illegal Mexican people speaking spanish. This is MY COUNTRY! If i want to hear foreign languages i would go to their countries and be put in their jails like they do Americans. They deem us foreign spies and throw us in their prisons never to be heard of again! They come to America?, They get treated better than we , the citizens of our own country!, I'M SICK OF IT!
