Fox's five-year plan calls for building a larger consular presence in the United States, and this is already in operation. In U.S. areas with large Hispanic (including illegal) populations, the Mexican consul donates to the local public schools the same textbooks that are used in every elementary school in Mexico, grades 1 through 6.

You know, I have to wonder why a Mexican would want to come to the US (namely, Arizona) and have their kid educated. AZ's education is in shambles, rating #49 in the nation.

Here's an illustration. I was talking to a 7th grader, who has been here w/ her family from Mexico for 2 years. I asked her how things were going in school. She said "okay...it's all review for me". I asked her when she learned this material. She told me that she learned the current material she was studying, three years ago in Mexico. SAD! Maybe we should start telling the Mexicans that they would be better off keeping their kids there for school, don't come to Arizona!

They like to say their schools in Mexico are superior but the Mexican hispanics have a 38% drop out rate even with classes given in Spanish and on the border, you see them coming over every day with carloads of kids who attend US schools which they obviously wouldn't do if they had better schools. Mexico wouldn't be in the shape it's in if it had good schools.
