This is what happens when you advertise as a Sanctuary City complete with a Day Worker Center and a more than 50% rental rate. The school district has been battling with this problem for years and it's always the same story with the same poor results.

We're going to need every educated/trained worker we can get to support the baby boomers when they retire.
More education, more GDP, more income, more revenue, fewer deficits.

Agreed. But, the solution is not to throw more taxpayer money at the problem. We need to deal with the "socioeconomic factors" as Rodgers put it euphemistically. We need to stop publishing school assignments in Spanish. The Mexicans, legal and otherwise, need to put some effort into it. We need to set the expectations and hold the parents accountable.
