I think this is backwards thinking on the part of the school superintendent. More kids = more money for the district. What about a quality education for all the US taxpayers children that are attending these schools. If there were not so many illegal children attending these schools then the money paid by the taxpaying citizens should go farther in providing a quality education. If a law was passed denying free education to all illegal children in the US then YES a major decrease would happen , resulting in teachers needing to be let go and school shutting down. But, the upside is that the US Taxpayers would not be spending hundreds of millions of dollars educating another countries children. The scale has to rebalance itself and it could be painful, but it needs to happen.Feb 21, 2011
The US tax paying citizen should not have to be responsible for providing education for illegal immigrants (children). I do not understand if these spanish speaking children are US Citizens why they do not speak english already. When I went to elementary school a birth certificate was required upon enrollment, when my children attended school a birth certificate was required upon enrollment. What happened?
I hope the States pass laws that prevent illegal immigrants from receiving any education at the expense of tax payers.Feb 21, 2011
