So now the citizen kids have a lower student:teacher ratio and can finally get a better education without the school wasting money on ESL. Nice

Now the school districts are going to whine they don't have enough to supply a good education. They're always demanding more funding, at least it won't be going to criminals being educated.

Quote from article,
Francisco Avilis has children who were excited for the start of the new school year. However, he’s planning to move back to Mexico with his family because his concerns about SB1070 now outweigh the risks of staying in the country illegally.

Fantastic , gravy train is over. Pledge allegiance to Mexico.

The student/teacher ratio will not improve. Brewer cut school funding and many Arizona teachers were laid off at the beginning of the summer - over 600 in Tucson alone. In addition - district funding is based on number of students. Fewer students = less funding.

Brewer probably had to cut school funding to make up for all the other losses in taxes due to illegal aliens sucking up everything else.

In NJ it costs the taxpayers roughly 15,000 to educate one kid so every single illegal is taking away from legal residents, the tax payer.
In NY the ACLU is claiming that the requirement of a Birth Certificate is keeping illegals out of school and suing a school district. HELLO I needed Birth Certificates to enroll my kids in the school I pay hefty taxes for, along with my property tax bill and electric bill to prove residency in the town.

So you're saying then, the student:teacher ratio is either gonna stay the same or lower? In any case, no ESL kids means no degradation of education

Exactly! There was a thread a while ago that even with the fed funding the amount was pretty alarming. With that kid gone the school is much better off. I wish CA would do the same so my kids could get to use the Teachers but alas, the Teachers spend each hour in special sessions trying to get the bottom of the class up to par. This "bottom" of the class is mostly the ESL students.

Race to the top or no child left behind are not working with the massive amounts of ESL students with illegal parents.
