Whoa - a good umber of teachers in the public school system here in New Mexico are Hispanics, mainly from Mexico and Spain.

I've often wondered why they had to "import" them since so many home-grown teachers speak Spanish - sometimes better than they speak English.

In fact, I have two in my ESL Transitions classes now - one from Mexico and the other from Spain.

"Once it realized the mistake, the school board turned the investigation over to the Department of Homeland Security and changed law firms. An in-house investigation found that the school board didn't do enough to find qualified teachers that were legal residents.

"The District and some of its employee are victims of those irregularities," Harry Jones, a lawyer the school board hired to conduct the investigation, told FOX 4 in Dallas-Fort Worth. "It looks like somebody was getting the fees that should not have been. That's what we're investigating."

I wonder if anyone's making money on the deal here.

Regards,
John

I'd like to know the numbers of out of work American teachers who live out of unemployment compensation. Either establish an official bilingualism or stop discriminating against the ones who aren't bilingual!
