Hillsboro parents sue over son's ESL placement
The parents of a Latino boy who does not speak Spanish filed a $700,000 federal lawsuit against the Hillsboro School District.
The parents allege that educators placed their son in an English as a Second Language program solely because of his ethnicity.
I believe that it actually had less to do with his ethnicity and more to do with the fact that the schools get more money for ESL kids. It just works out that it's the Hispanic kids who have to suffer.
I was seething with rage when I heard this report on the radio this morning. There was a school district (not Sherwood) that tried this garbage on one of my children. I am thoroughly convinced that there is a special place in Hell for the teachers/administrators/staff who stunt the learning of children for a little more funding.
