Yakima school program helps Mexican students learn
At first glimpse, Room 10A at Davis High School seems like any other classroom.
But a closer look reveals something else. Walls are draped with Mexican maps and tapestries.
Standing before about two dozen students, teacher Jorge Herrera jots algebraic equations on a large wall monitor as he gives instruction in Spanish.
Welcome to the school's CONEVyT portal, an online program developed by the Mexican government, adopted by the Yakima School District three years ago and now gaining converts across the state.
It's not clear just how many students are here illegally, and school districts are not legally required to ask, he said.
I have blogged about the Oregon version of this where they have goals for our illegal students such as:
Improving their self-esteem, and pride for the Mexican culture
How wonderful that it has crept up to Washington. But why are we hanging foreign flags in our government buildings? (schools) It's because illegal aliens have no desire to be Americans, they are simply here for money and taxpayer funded freebies such as these education programs.
Their loyalty is not to this great country but to Mexico, which is strange because they clearly have voted with their feet as to which is the better of the two.
