    THE CHILD LEFT BEHIND

    I’ve heard Obama say he will spend more money on the “NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND” program and on “CHARTER” schools. But what about the child left behind in the failing public schools who is left behind because they cannot afford to use a school voucher and go to another school or simple do no want to leave the neighborhood school? Is he going to close those schools and force that child into another?

    Private school are better because the have smaller classes, more money and parents can afford to send them. When you have one teacher trying to teach an over crowded class with student that don’t completely understand English you are going to get schools and children that fail. The problem lies with our schools being flooded of children of illegal aliens that are costing our children and our schools. Our teachers are doing the best they can with what they have been dealt by our government who refuse to control immigration. Obama’s solution is making them all legal and bring in more at a further cost. Uncontrolled immigration is costing us more than our schools. It is costing us our country.

    Some of our schools here in Reno are 90% Hispanic. That should tells us where the education funding is going. It concentrated on the non-English comprehending child and that leaves the English speaking child behind to learn on their own.

    Solution to our education problems?
    FIX OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS or CONTROL IMMIGRATION.

    wow them devil hispanics are responsible for all the evils in the world...why are you attacking the president elect for what the bush administration has allowed for 8 years....even teachers dont care for the no child left behind program...perhaps the solutioin is not the continiual blame of hispanics but looking at how the american education system works...but to do that you would have to look at reality and its much easier just to throw stones at hispanics....

    Uncontrolled immigration is certainly PART of the problem I'll grant you that.

    Here is Reno, many of our schools are as much as 90% hispanic and are responsible for over crowding. We did not have those problems when we did not have 20 million illegal aliens in this country. I throw stone at the cause and educating children of illegal aliens are a major problem since many do not speak English when they enter school and even after the learn Engllish there are comprehending problem in later grades. So the problem carries through.
    Many Americans children cannot get into kindergarten because class are filled with Mexicans and have to wait a full year to get in.
    Mariposa School for Learning is more than 98% non-English speaking children and is paid for by the taxpayer.
    Children of illegla aliens are a major problem in more areas than education. They over crowd health and dental clinics. We had had to buil three new country clinics and an addition dental climic especially for children. We have had a population boom of hispanics into Nevada and now our leaders are seeing the cost and is thinking of passing laws like Arizona and Okla. There has been defininite imporvements in those states.

    The ones I find amazing are the ones that actually cross over from Mexico to go to school here. We cannot send our children out of district without paying through the nose. Yet they keep allowing people who live a different Country to attend school here.

    The reality is that you can't keep dumping more and more children into the public education system whose families are not contributing enough to the tax base to be able to provide the extra services for those children. Most school systems are funded primarily by property taxes. The system was not designed to deal with whole communities of people living 30 to a single property tax address.

    It wouldn't make a bit of difference if Mexico paid back the cost of the education and medical care..that the US taxpayer spent on the citizens of Mexico. not a bit.

    Strolling, the fact is, some of the most dismal school districts are mostly all white schools in Mississippi. These kids score lower on scholastic exams than anywhere else in the USA.

    It's amazing Miami school districts do not share the same problems as the city of Reno.... How does that happen?

    I attended a high school which was about 80% Hispanic... We lived in an agricultural region. I was not handicapped because my classmates were Hispanic. Better teachers are needed in Reno, if what the OP says is correct.

    You might be surprised by the number of students in private school whose parents cannot afford tuition. In some Catholic schools there are 30+ kids with no aids. There are also children with various learning disabilities, with teachers with little training and no support services. Believe me, those class rooms are not all sweetness and light. There is a lot of downtime. Focus ends up being on disruptive kids and the rest are left to wait.
    I can't disagree with any of that. More to the point, McCain would have done the same. I voted for the later, you?
    Have you joined the school board or city council?

    How can you not disagree with that, when you don't have statistical facts and empircal data to support this claim?
