Why does the hispanic community continue to boom and at the same time all we hear about is the are in poverty? Simple, the US government has done nothing to stop illegle immigration and even harbors them. They do not report wages or pay taxes as they should. So, they are getting free medical care to have even more children, get food stamps and TANF, and free school that is the heart of this article. All at taxpayers expense. Stop the cycle and the schools will have more funds and will improve again.

over 50% of Texas students are Hispanic. And yes, it is having an effect on education K-12.
Many more ESL/Bilingual teachers are needed K-5 along with remedial English in 6-12.

The achievement gap will close itself when they become the majority of the population. The new norm. Lower than the old norm.

Education is not a bad thing, the rising cost of education is. The average ESL student cost anywhere from $2500 to $5000 more a year to educate than strictly English speaking students, depending on the state.

And some people say speaking spanish will enhance the US and make us stronger, when in reality its just going to slow everything down and make everything so much harder.

The burden of education comes through with taxing the population. We in NJ have the highest property tax burden because of the amount of children expanding in the school systems putting a huge property tax burden on all homeowners here in NJ.

Many middle class Americans can't afford to have kids and pay the bills too.

So in that case all education is bad, since it is true, we the taxpayers pay for public education that the majority of children use.

You would rather there be no publicly funded education and the U.S. would sink in education attainment to maybe the level of Haiti?

The U.S. already ranks 25th in student Math skills out of 31 countries. You want it to go lower?

Basdcially I think with the state of the states budgets and the federal deficit education is goig to get money throw at it to solve problems. Basically education is going to have to exist on the higher than any other country that now exist.Clearly money is not the main rpoblem of poorer results with more spent.
