    Re: #58-Immersion.

    Oregon Law funds ESL at an extra 50% p/yr. with NO time limits.
    There is no incentive (‘cept NCLB & OR is failing on that) to put an ESL Student in a regular classroom as the District loses that extra money. (Fed’s kick in another 25% of our money for “Free” B-fast & Lunch)

    With over 62,000 ESL Students (a 250% increase) @ $2,750 ea. extra = $170.5 Million/yr. for an 80% Failure rate program. Yes 8 of 10 Not proficient after 5 yr.s in Bilingual programs, as proven by NCLB reports and a 3 yr. study in S/K via a Dr. Hargett.

    I have years of research of Facts on this and CA AZ & MA have gone to immersion in English only and are getting much better results than Bilingual and saving Millions in Taxpayer funding that can be re-directed fo other items needed in School. CA is dealing with over 1.2 Million ESL Students p/yr., they should know what works.

    This Sept. 21-25, in W. Salem, there will be a Statewide Panel hearing from Pro & Con on this. If you are an Immigrant, Teacher, Friends are immigrants & have Children, etc. and support Immersion, please attend this meeting and speak out for this. Call me to get on the list 503-569-4960, Rick Hickey or Contact Rep. Kim Thatcher’s office.

    #1 reason for failing NCLB = Bilingual programs!
    Hope? California opponents outspent pros 20 to 1 and it still passed.

    For the Future of Oregon & America – English for the Children.

    Vote NO on all the measures submitted by the Oregon legislature!

    Rick Hicky is correct.

    What is worse is that Woodburn School District is proud that they can graduate a Spanish speaking student without ever taking a class in English. That is right, a Spanish speaking (US citizen) WHS student can learn Math in Spanish, US History in Spanish, Reading in Spanish, Electives in Spanish, everything in Spanish.

    And they get a High School diploma from Woodburn.

    And what kinda job would this US Citizen, High School graduate from Woodburn high School be eligible for?

    What job?, well, certainly a busboy in the back of a restaurant, same as the Spanish speaking illegal alien.

    That is a shame. Our US Citizen Spanish speaking high school students deserve better than that. Immersion is the only way for them to succeed in America.
