Coming soon to a school near you, 37,477 illiterate students
The Hill: Obama prepares schools for migrant kids.
A total of 37,477 children have been released to an appropriate adult sponsor, usually a parent, relative or family friend, according to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Those children, who have been settled in all 50 states, would all be eligible to attend public school.
Some of those children may have been schooled in their native countries; none know how to speak, write, or read English.
The onerous burden on all school districts affected is about to start.
But wait! There’s more:
Official: Second illegal immigrant wave of 30,000 coming in September, October
The Obama administration insists that Schools to List Immigrant Kids as ‘Homeless’ for Enrollment Records
Guidance released Monday by the U.S. Department of Education about the unaccompanied minors also pointed out that unaccompanied minors in the custody of sponsors could be eligible for benefits under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
. . .
The VDOE memo reiterated the requirement that school divisions “must immediately enroll homeless students” and must do so regardless of whether or not they are able “to produce the records required for enrollment.”
Let me ask a question, are the millions of minority American schoolchildren stuck in substandard and failing schools now able to enroll anywhere regardless of whether or not they are able “to produce the records required for enrollment?
