A recent Houston Chronicle article reported that experts in Texas "predict grim future for state if leaders don't address gap among students." The "gap" they are referring to is the one between Hispanic and white students. [" Experts Predict Grim Future for State If Leaders Don't Address Gap Among Students", Gary Scharrer, Houston Chronicle, September 3, 2006]
Here are some of the frightening facts from the story:
Reporter Scharrer quotes Sate Rep. Pete Gallego, the state House Mexican American Caucus chairman as saying, "Unless Texas changes course, we doom an entire generation of kids."
Change course? Well, Mr. Gallego, it's a little late for that. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that years of unchecked mass immigration from Third World countries is the reason for the coming crisis in Texas
I hope our situation in Texas serves as a warning to those living in non-border states. Unfortunately, the damage in Texas is irreversible.
You cannot dump millions of children of Third World immigrants into a state's public school system over three decades and realistically expect that state to keep up.
I don't see how Texans can see anything these days but a half empty glass.
