Skip to comments.Obama Uses Failing High School as Backdrop for Immigration Speech (Very Appropriate, eh?)
Posted on 01/30/2013 5:21:12 AM PST by bestintxas
President Obama, looking for a high school with a majority Hispanic population to use as a backdrop for his demagogic speech on immigration reform, settled on Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unfortunately, the same children to whom Obama spoke of opportunity are deprived of it at Del Sol, which dramatically underachieves academically. According to Del Sols 2010-2011 School Accountability Summary Report, 54% of Hispanic students attending Del Sol were non-proficient in math. The school lags behind both the statewide standards and the standards of the school district on reading, writing, and mathematics; just 27% of the school population exceeded standards in reading, only 1% exceeded standards in writing, and a mere 9% exceeded standards in mathematics. While 6% of high school children in the district were either below average or abysmal in reading, 10% were at Del Sol; 22% were below average or emergent/developing in writing, but 38% were at Del Sol; 29% were below average or worst standard in math at the district level, but 43% were at Del Sol.
The dropout rates at Del Sol are significantly higher than at the other schools in the district. Thats particularly true for Hispanic students. While 5.1% of Hispanic kids drop out of high school in Nevada statewide, and 5.5% did at the district level, a full 9.6% did from Del Sol. Overall, Del Sol was classified as a school which did not demonstrate Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) during the 2010-2011 school year.

Being stoopit isn’t a barrier to underachievement.
Being lazy and disposessed of ambition are hallmarks of a vacuous spirit and a soul lacking purpose.
The kids are just props, like Obama’s fake Greek columns.
Si se puede. la Raza
Less then a mile from mom and dads house where I grew up at. School is in a terrible location and is fairly new. Maybe 12 years old and right under the flight path for McCarren.
The entire neighborhood has decayed and there is a new Muslim “cultural learning center” around the corner that just popped up and will probably want a mosque soon.
By the way, why does muzzie Obama go to Las Vegas so much? Is it because whatever happens in Vegas bathhouses stays in Vegas?
