A week ago, I blogged about the Mayor of Lynn Massachusetts and her struggles to make her city budget work under the strain of hundreds of Central American children (Lynn, Massachusetts, ‘On the Brink’ from Dumped Illegal Alien Kid Costs). She has had to hire new staff to handle foreign kids, many of whom speak [...]
Lynn is a city of 90,000, located ten miles north of downtown Boston, where the influx of dumped non-American children has played havoc with the town’s whole budget. The number of diverse foreign students has nearly doubled over two years, and the increased costs for schools have been paid by transferring funds that were designated [...]
In six weeks Americans will find out how much their communities are affected by Obama’s open borders when schools open and citizens learn that hundreds (or thousands) of diseased, non-English-speaking children have been plopped in local classrooms by the feds.
Only a few towns (like Murrieta CA, Lawrenceville VA and League City TX) have told the government [...]
It’s not unusual for illegal aliens to pose as a different age, particularly since they are so familiar with obtaining fraudulent identification. One recalls the Honduran “juvenile” crack dealers of San Francisco who had fake ID showing them to be teenagers to get the city’s famous protection from enforcement for pre-adults: at one point in 2008 [...]
Chelsea is a city of 37,000 located across the river from Boston. It is now 62 percent hispanic, having begun to diversify in the 1970s.
Chelsea appears to have gotten a head start on the alien kiddie deluge, with the first wave arriving over the last school year. The fall enrollment started at 5500, but ended [...]
Who would have thought that the LA Times would dig up deportation data unfriendly to the administration and then plunk the graph on its Sunday front page? Unlikely, yet it did print a devastating chart:
The deportation figure would have been even more shocking had it been paired with a graph showing the kid surge over [...]
The Washington Post has a curiously honest look at a school in Fairfax County, Virginia, where kindergartens are very diverse indeed. Immigration has imported poor, non-English-speaking children into a formerly white middle class area with predictable results. The foreign kids need the usual expensive special treatment, from ESL to remedial instruction and free food.
Below, extreme [...]
Unlike Mexicans, Asians really do have conservative values of hard work, delayed gratification, scholarship and appreciation of capitalism. Over half of Asians have a bachelor’s degree or higher, while the national rate is 30 percent for a BA.
Asians are the highest-income, best-educated tribe in America as a result of their industriousness. Why are so many [...]
Taxpayer-supported state colleges are supposed to provide a higher education at a reasonable cost to the young people who are residents. That’s why in-state students get lower subsidized tuition than outsiders.
But lately in California, not so much. The state’s university system has forgotten its mission to educate California kids in part because it is low [...]
Recent days have been witness to the depressing spectacle of a courageous women’s rights campaigner being denied an academic award as a result of Muslim agitation: Brandeis University Withdraws Honor for Ayaan Hirsi Ali after CAIR Propaganda.
Interestingly, Brandeis University has a noble motto on its seal that suggests commitment to academic freedom: “Truth even unto [...]
I heard a radio version of this story on Friday. The idea is to take a bunch of Mexican immigrants and teach them computer coding to liberate them from the tomato fields and get swell jobs in tech. They are getting a bachelor’s degree in computer science in three years, even though many start not [...]
In 1996, Californians voted with a 54 percent majority to prohibit racial preferences via Proposition 209. Race hucksters have been squawking ever since, and certain institutions, particularly the University of California, have come up with a string of squirrelly work-arounds, such as “holistic” admissions.
The latest liberal revolt against achievement is SCA5, a bill passed in [...]
