THE LA RAZA OCCUPIERS – HATE LITERACY, EVEN WHEN IT’S HANDED TO THEM DISCOUNTED, AS MUCH AS THEY HATE SPEAKING THE LANGUAGE OF THE OCCUPIED GRINGOS!
IN MEXIFORNIA, THE LA RAZA DEMS HAVE CREATED A MEXICAN WELFARE STATE. WHILE HIGHER EDUCATION TUITION RATES FOR LEGALS HAS SOARED, THE LA RAZA LEGISLATURE HANDED A BILL TO LA RAZA JERRY BROWN THAT PROVIDED SPECIAL IN STATE TUITION DISCOUNTS TO ILLEGALS!
LA RAZA JERRY BROWN ALSO JUST SIGNED A BILL TO LAW MAKING IT !!! ILLEGAL !!! FOR EMPLOYERS TO USE E-VERIFY!
THERE ARE ONLY EIGHT (8) STATES WITH A POPULATION GREATER THAN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, WHERE NEARLY HALF OF ALL JOBS GO TO ILLEGAL USING STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS. THIS SAME COUNTY PAYS OUT $600 MILLION IN WELFARE TO ILLEGALS, AND HAS THE HIGHEST MEXICAN GANG MURDER RATE IN THE NATION (ACCORDING TO CA A.G., KAMALA HARRIS, NEARLY HALF OF ALL MURDERS IN THE STATE ARE BY MEXICAN GANGS).
BILLIONAIRE MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY BLOOMBERG IS A LA RAZA SUPPORTER. HE WANTS OBAMA’S AMNESTY, OPEN BORDERS AND CONTINUED SABOTAGE OF E-VERIFY…! IT’S ALL ABOUT KEEPING WAGES DEPRESSED WITH HORDES OF MEXICANS.
ONE REASON WHY MOST OF THE FORTUNE 500 ARE GENEROUS DONORS TO THE MEXICAN FASCIST PARTY of LA RAZA “THE RACE”, IS BECAUSE HORDES OF ILLEGALS KEEP WAGES DEPRESSED FROM $300 TO $400 BILLION PER YEAR. THE REAL COST OF ALL THIS “CHEAP” LABOR IS ACTUALLY TRANSFERRED TO THE BACKS OF THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS TAXPAYERS. IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY ALONE, WHERE HALF OF ALL JOBS ARE HELD BY ILLEGALS USING A STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, THE COUNTY PAYS OUT OF PROPERTY TAXES $600 MILLION PER YEAR IN WELFARE TO ILLEGALS. A QUARTER OF THIS GOES TO MEXICO’S ANCHOR BABY BREEDING, WHICH IS HOW MEXICO “ANCHORS” THEIR OCCUPATION OF MEXIFORNIA – THE MEX LOOTING AND WELFARE STATE.
MEXICANS LOATHE LITERACY LIKE THEY DO ENGLISH!
DROP BY LOS ANGELES PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL, SANTEE EDUCATIONAL COMPLEX WHERE THE STUDENT BODY IS OVERWHELMINGLY LA RAZA. THERE YOU WILL FIND CLASSES TAUGHT IN SPANISH. BOOKS AND HANDOUTS ARE IN SPANISH. STUDENTS SIT ON THEIR WELL FED FAT ASSES WHEN THE (AMERICAN) NATIONAL ANTHEM IS PLAYED, AND SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES END IN VIVA MEXICO! VIVA MEXICO!
WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
OH, THE NEW YORK TIMES IS OWNED BY THE RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD, MEXICAN CARLOS SLIM. THE TIMES IS NOW MOUTHPIECE FOR LA RAZA SUPREMACY AND PROPAGANDA!

In New York, Mexicans Lag in Education
By KIRK SEMPLE
In the past two decades, the Mexican population in New York City has grown more than fivefold, with immigrants settling across the five boroughs. Many adults have demonstrated remarkable success at finding work, filling restaurant kitchens and construction sites, and opening hundreds of businesses.
But their children, in one crucial respect, have fared far differently.
About 41 percent of all Mexicans between ages 16 and 19 in the city have dropped out of school, according to census data.
No other major immigrant group has a dropout rate higher than 20 percent, and the overall rate for the city is less than 9 percent, the statistics show.
This crisis endures at the college level. Among Mexican immigrants 19 to 23 who do not have a college degree, only 6 percent are enrolled. That is a fraction of the rates among other major immigrant groups and the native-born population.
Moreover, these rates are significantly worse than those of the broader Mexican immigrant population in the United States.
The problem is especially unsettling because Mexicans are the fastest-growing major immigrant group in the city, officially numbering about 183,200, according to the Census Bureau, up from about 33,600 in 1990. Experts say the actual figure is far larger, given high levels of illegal immigration.
A small group of educators and advocates have begun various educational initiatives for Mexicans, and there is evidence of recent strides.
But the educators and advocates say that unless these efforts are sustained, and even intensified, the city may have a large Mexican underclass for generations.
“We are stanching an educational hemorrhage, but only partially,” said Robert C. Smith, a sociology professor at the City University of New York who studies the local Mexican population.
“The worst outcomes are still possible,” he added.
Experts say the crisis stems from many factors — or what Dr. Smith called “a perfect storm of educational disadvantage.”
Many Mexicans are poor and in the country illegally. Parents, many of them uneducated, often work in multiple jobs, leaving little time for involvement in their children’s education.
Some are further isolated from their children’s school life because of language barriers or fear that contact with school officials may lead to deportation.
Unlike some other immigrant populations, like the Chinese, Mexicans have few programs for tutoring or mentoring.
“We don’t have enough academic role models,” said Angelo Cabrera, 35, a Mexican immigrant who runs a nonprofit group that tutors Mexican and Mexican-American students in the basement of a church in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx.
Many young illegal immigrants in New York City say there is no point in staying in school because their lack of legal status limits their access to college scholarships and employment opportunities. Some drop out under the erroneous belief that they are not eligible to attend college. (Illegal immigrants who graduate from a high school in New York State or earn a G.E.D. are not only allowed to attend the state’s public university system, but are also eligible for in-state tuition.)
“They just give up,” said Karina Sosa, 22, a Mexican-American undergraduate at Baruch College and an education activist.
Educational achievement among Mexican immigrants is worse in New York than in the broader Mexican population around the country in part, experts say, because Mexicans in the city have shallower roots, less stable households and higher rates of illegal immigration.
Ivan Lucero, who emigrated illegally from Mexico with his mother when he was 6 and grew up in the Belmont area of the Bronx, said his parents urged him to stay in school and study. But his father was distracted by long work days, and his mother, who did not speak English, had no contact with the school.
Mr. Lucero said he began skipping classes to hang out with other young Mexicans who had formed a gang. Once heavily Italian, the neighborhood was experiencing an influx of Mexicans.
Mexican children were filling Belmont’s schools, Mexican workers were staffing restaurants in the Little Italy section around Arthur Avenue and Mexican-owned shops were popping up on every other block.
Many young Mexicans were compelled to get jobs to help their families. In high school, Mr. Lucero began working as a busboy, which further distracted him from school work, he said. He was forced to repeat 10th grade twice, though he would lie to his parents about how he was doing.
“You don’t think of nothing else but having fun with your friends, meeting up with girls, having your boys with you,” Mr. Lucero said. “The last thing you think of is school.”
He was expelled when he was 18, while still in 10th grade. Most of his Mexican friends from high school also dropped out and entered the work force, and so did one of his younger brothers.
“I don’t see many Mexican kids going to school,” said Mr. Lucero, now 28 and working as a waiter. “It’s horrible.”
These problems extend throughout the swelling Mexican immigrant diaspora in the New York region. They have also afflicted the population of second-generation Mexican-Americans: While educational achievement is far higher among American-born children with Mexican ancestry, it still lags behind the rates of most other foreign-born and native-born groups, according to census data, which was analyzed by Andrew A. Beveridge and Susan Weber-Stoger, demographers at Queens College.
Syndi Cortes, 19, one of five children of Mexican immigrants in the Highbridge section of the Bronx, said she dropped out after getting pregnant at 16. She had already been cutting most of her classes, she said, and so had most of her Mexican and Mexican-American friends.
Last year, she tried to resume school, but her mother, who was working long days as a housecleaner, was opposed to day care and forced her to drop out again to look after her baby.
Ms. Cortes said she felt stranded and regretful at not having a high-school degree. “I want to get back,” she said.
Many efforts to address the problem have centered on the City University of New York. In 2007, Jay Hershenson, senior vice chancellor for university relations, formed a special task force to study the issue, currently the only one of its kind at the university focusing on a specific immigrant population.
“The loss of talent, of human capital, was simply an educational catastrophe, one that CUNY had no intention of ignoring,” Mr. Hershenson said.
Over the past several years, CUNY, as well as the Mexican consulate in New York, several advocacy groups and others, have established afterschool tutoring, college-readiness and scholarship programs; college admissions and financial aid counseling for students and parents alike; and college fairs aimed at the Mexican population.
The New York Immigration Coalition recently started an initiative to bring more immigrant parents into the schools. Early efforts, in collaboration with the Mexican consulate, focused on Mexicans.
These programs have already yielded some gains, advocates say. In 2000, for instance, the high school dropout rate among Mexican immigrants in the city was 47 percent, six percentage points higher than the current rate.
But advocates say it has been a grinding, uphill battle.
“There are very few of us working on this problem,” said Mr. Cabrera, who founded his nonprofit organization, MASA-MexEd, after years of struggling to stay in school and get a college degree while also working to support himself. “We have thousands of students who need the support, and we can only provide the support to hundreds.”
He added, “I have to make sure that they keep their dreams alive.”
A CALIFORNIA TEACHER SEES & SPEAKS ON LA RAZA IN OUR SCHOOLS:
FORTY PERCENT OF THE STUDENT BODY IN CALIFORNIA CANNOT SPEAK ENGLISH.
Subject: Cheap Labor This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent 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 roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a 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. (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. (OUR TAX DOLLARS A T WORK) I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less then 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 to not only 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.
