Your tax dollars at work. As noted in the chart below from the LAUSD 2013-14 fact sheet, approximately 80 percent of district students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, so the taxpayer is dinged for the appalling waste of food.

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 [...]
The hopes of the Romeike family of homeschoolers to remain in America seemed to have crashed and burned on Monday when the Supreme Court declined to take their asylum case, but on Tuesday the DHS intervened to allow them to stay indefinitely as long as they remain law abiding.

In Mexifornia, the growing population of hispanic kids is still doing poorly in school compared with the palefaces. A recent meditation from the Associated Press implies that the problem is Low Expectations, neatly pinning the blame on teachers and society as a whole. No mention of non-scholarly cultures at home.

The city of Indio (population 76,036 in 2010) in southern California is located about a hundred miles north of the Mexican border and has plenty of diverse influence from that precinct.
Indio High School recently showed up in the news because of a student being diagnosed as having tuberculosis and 45 others testing positive for exposure.
Montreal recently experienced some discussion about Muslim diversity after a photo appeared showing burqa creatures shepherding a group of Canadian pre-schoolers:

The idea was that that the left could not accept the fact that an individual communist, Lee Harvey Oswald, murdered the Democrat President, and as a result, [...]
University elites must be happy with the new report from the Institute of International Education, which works closely with the State Department, showing that 819,644 international students came to study in American colleges during the 2012-13 school year.
