Skip to comments.Challenges of educating new immigrant students
Posted on 12/17/2012 12:17:19 PM PST by moonshinner_09
I am sorry to report that we are not doing very well in teaching children newly immigrated to the United States. This is particularly true for Hispanic children, who account for over three-quarters of students enrolled in bilingual (ESL or ELL) programs. For the most part, a substantial learning gap exists between Anglo and African American students and their Hispanic counterparts.
We must provide new immigrant students with services that are both culturally and linguistically appropriate. These children are our future. Yet, the overview seen across the country shows we are not investing in this future children are being left behind.
Why should it make a difference where a young kid sitting in a class, trying to understand and learn, was born? Or where his or her parents were born? It does. Language and culture can create barriers to success in education, particularly for young immigrant students.

We need to ensure the only immigrants we allow into our borders speak our language, know our customs and laws, FOLLOW THOSE LAWS, and do not take a dime of any public service.
Unless and until we return to those standards, we will continue our headlong race into irrelevance and eventual oblivion.
Multiculturalism -—> E Pluribus Pluribus.
First expel all the illegal students..second ship all the illegal parents back home..
NOw..we will have enough money to properly educate all our legal residents.
no one ask the simple question: DO YOU INTEND TO BECOME A CITIZEN?....the reason it’s not asked is because we all know the answer we’d get....hell no, why?
Very few illegal immigrants from Mexico have more than 8 years of education in Mexico. Many have only 4 years of education. When the kids are old enough to work the parents take their kids out of school. That is the Mexican culture. When their kids go to American schools do not expect the parents to help them with their homework. The parents can barely read and write in Spanish.
“...These children are our future. ...”
They are not our children.
They are not citizens.
We owe them nothing if they have entered illegally...not even the cost of the fare to ship them back home.
(Although I concede that even with a language barrier they are very much more desirable and productive than the combined liberal arts faculties of the vast majority of our universities.)
Was that study group the one that promotes the overthrow of the U.S. government ?
“Multiculturalism -> E Pluribus Pluribus.”
The use of the word “appropriate” infuriates me. So they bust into our communities, make us pay for their kid’s “free” education, and teaching them the same as we teach our own kids isn’t appropriate?
When we took the three R’s out of school and replaced them with Sex Ed., affirmative action, focus on sports, political correctness, and emasculation of males. Along about the same time God was told to leave the premises.
Funny thing is man is conceited enough the think they can tell God what to do.
That’s right. These kids grow up without a book in the house of any language. The parents are usually well-meaning but frankly, simple peasantry who send the kids off to The Big Building Where the Teachers Are, and that’s pretty much the extent of their contribution.
What’s particularly odd is that what is appropriate for white children works just fine for Asian kids too. In fact, it works even better on them. Weird, eh?
I hope it catches on now that we are being ruled by Bronco, et. al.
Yep, how are we to address the Achievement Gap?
Uh, when we quit trying to make citizens out of all Public School inmates?
Well some schools just decide to do away with advanced classes because it’s “not fair” that certain minorities aren’t “fairly represented”. Then they wonder why we don’t produce enough engineers, etc.
(What ever happened to Drag Racing anyway?)
