Our public education system is a mess

If this doesn't get your attention, you better check your pulse!)
In 2016 nine hundred teachers got laid off from the Los Angeles Unified School District. They are $650,000 over their annual budget.

The following by an English teacher helps to explain one area that looms large over California's educational crisis.

I hope each person receiving this mail will read it carefully, all the way to the end. It is sad what is happening to our great country all because our politicians are afraid they will miss out on a vote. What a travesty!
THIS ENGLISH TEACHER HAS PHRASED IT THE BEST I'VE SEEN YET.
THIS SHOULD MAKE EVERYONE THINK, BE YOU DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN OR IN DEPENDENT.
FROM A CALIFORNIA SCHOOL TEACHER - - -
"As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:
I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large Southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels.
Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.
Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program.. When I say free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and a roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make the Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!)
I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids
(MORE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!)
I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America
(MORE AND MORE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!)
I have had to intervene several times for young substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them putas (whores ) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.
Free medical, free education, free food, day care, etc., etc., etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?
To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.
Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc., etc. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.
Americans, We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won't have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?
It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15, and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about "political correctness" that we don't have the will to do anything about it.
If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know including your Congressman and Senators.
CHEAP LABOR? ISN'T THAT WHAT THE WHOLE IMMIGRATION ISSUE IS ABOUT?
CONSUMERS DON'T WANT EXPENSIVE PRODUCE.
GOVERNMENT WILL TELL YOU AMERICANS DON'T WANT THE JOBS.


But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor." Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200 free.
ALSO....HE QUALIFIES FOR SECTION 8 HOUSING AND SUBSIDIZED RENT. HE QUALIFIES FOR FOOD STAMPS. HE QUALIFIES FOR FREE (NO DEDUCTIBLE), NO CO-PAY) HEALTH CARE. HIS CHILDREN GET FREE BREAKFASTS AND LUNCHES AT SCHOOL. HE REQUIRES BILINGUAL TEACHERS AND BOOKS. HE QUALIFIES FOR RELIEF FROM HIGH ENERGY BILLS. IF THEY ARE OR BECOME AGED, BLIND OR DISABLED, THEY QUALIFY FOR SSI. ONCE QUALIFIED FOR SSI THEY CAN QUALIFY FOR MEDICARE. ALL OF THIS IS AT TAXPAYER'S (OUR) EXPENSE.
HE DOESN'T WORRY ABOUT CAR INSURANCE, LIFE INSURANCE, OR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE. TAXPAYERS PROVIDE SPANISH LANGUAGE SIGNS, BULLETINS AND PRINTED MATERIAL. HE AND HIS FAMILY RECEIVE THE EQUIVALENT OF $20.00 TO $30.00/HOUR IN BENEFITS.
WORKING AMERICANS ARE LUCKY TO HAVE $5.00 OR $6.00/HOUR LEFT AFTER PAYING THEIR BILLS AND HIS.
THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS ALSO PAY FOR INCREASED CRIME, GRAFFITI AND TRASH CLEAN-UP.

CHEAP LABOR? YEAH RIGHT! WAKE UP PEOPLE!

This is one of the greatest misuse of taxpayer dollars ever laid on the back of the American people. While Congress does nothing to punish sanctuary cities, close the border, and stop illegals from using assistance programs, the situation will only get worse. The average middle class family has enough problems making ends meet without having to subsidize illegal aliens a living. These folks have their own families to worry about and stopping the giveaways would place less of a tax burden on them. Its time to start putting our own people first instead of illegal aliens who invaded a sovereign country by crossing the border illegally. In my humble opinion, if the situation continues this country will slowly become just another third-world cesspool.
