Texas academic rates are also pulled down by 10-20% of students having at least one illegal immigrant parent and at least 5% being illegally here themselves. Add in parents who came here to work sending kids to work as soon as able, pulling down graduation rates. The immigration issue is what is killing the education statistics.
And paying for bilingual education and free goodies (free school supplies, food handouts after school, free meals at school) drive up the total education line item.
Have you seen how old some of those pre-K kids are?
I hear pre-K’s are all needing money for more student parking.
well if all the ilegal school kids and medical patients left the state most of the head count for workers would be reduced by 50%. At Disd they estimate that your number is about 60% of the student body in grammer schools. They would have empty schools in order to have classes of more than 10.
