    "It's no surprise that Latinos make up the new majority in California schools, considering that their numbers have grown by leaps and bounds in recent decades. In 2009, Latinos made up 37 percent of the state's population, a number that continues to increase, according to the California Department of Finance.

    But their electoral sway has not grown by similar amounts, because almost 40 percent of adult Latinos in California are ineligible to vote, said Lisa Garcia Bedolla, an associate professor at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education."


    "If the majority of the population is becoming bilingual," he said, referring to the growing Latino population learning English, "why shouldn't the white minority also become bilingual?"
    THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS!

    Maybe this is why California ranks so low in education. Maybe that why our children are now heavier, seems like the more illegal immigrants the lower are numbers

    It certainly is outrageous. Everyone knows that true patriots have no need to learn anything.

    I speak English and Japanese. I believe that qualifies as bilingual.

    A better question is "why are US taxpayers paying for illegals' kids schooling?" IMHO we should assess Mexico for their citizens' education & healthcare & incarceration costs.

    Is it possible that some of the 37% of Latinos that make up the population are legal, or shall we paint them all with the same wide brush?

    Most of them aren't illegal. Their parents might be, but they aren't.

    Latinos use spray paint. No brush needed.
