I teach at a year-round school and one of my classes is a prep for the California High School Exit Exam for seniors who failed the test.
Last semester, two of my Limited English Proficiency/English Language Learner students were brother and sister, ages 22 and 20 respectively.
This is not adult school, which normally would be the place for students older than 18, but is a regular high school class.
The fall 2006 semester started recently and again I have another LEP student who is a 20-year-old woman.
When she enrolled, she informed me that she was not really a high school student because she had completed all of her high school requirements.
"Why are you here then?" I replied.
She told me that she was not a legal U.S. resident and was attending an extra high school semester to establish three years of California residency so that she would not have to pay out of state tuition for junior college classes in the fall.
The blinding vulgarity of an illegal alien admitting to playing the system is matched only by the fact that she's been encouraged by her counselor to re-enroll in a public high school after we've fulfilled our obligations to her.
I don't know how common this scamming is but it represents still another cost associated with illegal aliens.
We're now responsible for feeding and providing a free
high school education to illegal aliens well into their
By the way this woman, who qualifies for Title One funding and free school meals, was absent yesterday because her little sister fell down the stairs and had to be taken to the emergency room. I suppose the taxpayers will foot the hospital bill, too.
Just to give you an idea how far California K-12 public education has fallen, my father was a coach and a physical education, health and driver's education teacher. I remember zero population growth posters in his classroom in the early 1970's. It was part of the curriculum if you can believe it!
Talking about controlling population is politically incorrect today because we know that illegal immigration is driving force behind California's population growth as well as the nation's.
