    Many Students go to School Not Knowing English Language

    Many Students go to School Not Knowing English Language

    It's back to school in one week for Laredo students, and Associated Press is showing a state average of 16-percent of students will return to school not knowing the English language.

    But the numbers are much higher here in the gateway city.

    Laredo independent school district reports nearly 60-percent of their students speak little to no English, and they strive to change that.

    "For many of the kid's, their family has sacrificed so they can come from Mexico to achieve the American Dream which is the right to a quality education and being able to go to college and peruse any profession they want to achieve so we support that."

    Dr. Nelson says their teachers are heavily trained every year to deal with the growing number of students who speak little to no English.
    LISD’s elementary school teachers also have to have a bilingual certification.

    Before every school year, teachers go through rigorous training on how to teach Spanish-speaking students in English.

    The school system even has an early-age program where they teach young children the English language before they are school age.

    "We are one of the few school districts in the state that we offer full day Pre-K for three-year olds. Lots of people across the state start at 4. But we really try to go out and knock on doors and educate their parents that at three they can start grasping the English language."

    Despite the challenges of over half of their students not able to speak the English language, LISD students said it's a challenge they expect to help the kids.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Americans who speak only English being pushed aside. It's not just in education either, many jobs seemingly now demand you to be bilingual. We are teaching IA kids to be bilingual but not our own effectively giving them an advantage.

    Before the invasion of so many illegals, we never had to press one for english. We never had to see signs everywhere in spanish, we had a choice of learning a couple of languages in schools, now we are forced to learn spanish, we are forced to speak spanish to get a job... This is Bull! What we have done is cater to law breaking foreigners on so many levels. These people are literally changing America.

    No American should be forced to speak a foreign language in order to get hired for a job unless you are dealing with international companies.

    It is no wonder illegals are so bold and in your face and arrogant. They always get their damned way. They whine and protest about every little thing. They constantly make demands and are never ever satisfied.

    This is in no way the America I grew up in!!! It is shameful how we place illegals on a pedestal and force its' citizens to bend over backward to accomidate them! It is wrong, plain and simple.
