Hispanic-Majority Schools


Hispanic majority schools are far more likely than White majority schools to experience serious overcrowding and teacher shortages, according to a new study by UCLA's Institute of Democracy, Education & Access (IDEA), in collaboration with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF).

Students attending Hispanic majority high schools were also found to be less likely to graduate high school eligible for a four-year college or university than White majority high schools.

It sounds like the authors of this article think that American taxpayers should cough up even more money to educate non-citizens from the third world.

I have a different idea. Lets quit importing poverty. Every one of these third world kids that we have to educate costs the taxpayers about $8000 per year or $104,000 for a 13 year K-12 education. When an illegal alien inflicts their child on us they are essentialy stealing resources from our treasury that should be used to educate our own children.

And the huge cost is only half the story. The vast majority of these children are "English as a second language" students. These students require tremendously more attention from teachers.

Not only is the tax money that should be going to our children being diverted to the children of illegals but so is the bulk of the teaching time.

Import the third world, become the third world!
