Hispanic Students Missing From Schools

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. - The Robertson County school district faces some problems Friday morning after a recent crackdown on illegal immigration. The illegal immigration crackdown led to the vanishing of 11 percent of Hispanic students.

The district has been under state watch for failing to educate pockets of students, which includes non-English speakers.

Now of the 768 Hispanic students, 60 have formally withdrawn and another 25 to 30 can't be accounted for.

Public schools are required by a U.S Supreme Court decision to educate all students - regardless of their immigration status.

If the missing students don't return soon, they will be too far behind to succeed on upcoming achievement tests.

That alone would be a FAIR tax rebate - not funding ILLEGALS.

See you don’t have to ROUND THEM UP - they’ll leave on their own when there is an EMPLOYER CRACK DOWN!

LOL!

Imagine the TAX REBATE we could get back if all these ILLEGALS that don’t pay taxes took their kids home with them to MEXICO?

Geesh!

Isn’t it amazing how when we ENFORCE our LAWS on the books TODAY, that ILLEGALS GO HOME!

NO, Nazi type house invasions are needed!

No “immigration reform” is needed!

Enforce the LAWS on the books NOW!

“Hispanic Students Missing From Schools”

Seems to be a very poorly written “news” story. Usually when children are missing there are investigations, searches, appeals for help to find them, etc. This “story” proposes a mystery, “where are the children” but leaves everybody hanging. Apparently, they don’t care about “missing children.”

Of course the schools don’t care about “missing children”. They care about “losing dollars”.

Well, teachers will soon stop whining about over-crowded classrooms, as well as inability to teach due to language barriers.

I wouldn’t have seen this.

It sure wouldn’t be on the NEWS - anywhere ... Candidates are desperately trying to be ILLEGAL friendly.

Many cyber hugs your way !!!!!!

<<

When a large number of students suddenly leave, the theme of the story should be to express relief that finite resources can now be devoted to better serving the remaining students.

Instead, it is a problem. And what problem is that for the district, which is financed by taxes and has been forced to pay to educate children of people who are here illegally, and who hold jobs only because they claim a fraudulent SSN, thus impersonating the rightful holder of that SSN.

Yet more proof that liberalism is dangerous to our safety and prosperity.

I'm sorry for this tangent to what is mentioned in the OP. But given that the federal Constitution says nothing about public education, the 10th A. automatically reserves government power to address public education to the states.
10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
So why is the federal government telling the states how to spend their education dollars? Or is this another example of our corrupt Supreme Court carrying on the tradition of FDR's dirty politics by ignoring 10th A. protected state powers? In fact, I think that 14th A. lawmakers would have agreed that illegal immigrants who haven't contributed to a state's tax system shouldn't get anything out of it.

What am I overlooking?

The illegal immigration crackdown led to the vanishing of 11 percent of Hispanic students improved the teacher-pupil ratio by over 12%.

That's better.

If they're anything like the ones here, they're already so far behind that it wouldn't matter. Hey, maybe next year's school taxes won't be so high.
