    If they replaced the students the schools test scores would go up a LOT MORE than if they replaced the entire staff, I'll wager.

    Sixty five percent can't speak English? Well who can teach them? No one can! They have to learn English first! Take those 65% and make classrooms for them and have someone teach them English. Then after the semester or this year, they can join the school on the other side. We are not miracle workers here.

    Or bus them back where they came from. It should be made law that only those who speak the language can enter school. Start a school for those who want to learn english. Let them pay a modest tuition. It's not fair to English learners.
