Subject: $15 MILLION PER YEAR . . .

is the approximate cost that Gwinnett property taxpayers will pay in 2011 to educate children of illegal immigrants!

According to a 2008 Pew Hispanic Center study, "children of unauthorized immigrants are 6.8% of students enrolled in kindergarten through grade 12". Assuming this 2008 number holds true 2 years later, it translates into 10,880 'illegal' students attending GCPSS based on GCPSS's publicized 160,000 2010/11 K-12 student enrollment.

Using the 2008 U.S. Census cost of $12,028/K-12 student and -- increasing this national average total per-pupil funding from ALL revenue sources -- by (a) 2% for annual inflation + (b) approximately 10% for special purposes (ESOL, free & reduced price lunch, etc.) -- which benefits most children of illegal immigrants -- translates into about $15 MILLION in 2011 and more thereafter!

Also remember this only is based on 2011's operating cost to educate K-12 students. It DOESN'T include the capital costs to build new classrooms and schools, which are paid for through local SPLOSTs!

Hats off to all the Gwinnett property taxpayers who pay local, state and federal taxes to enable GCPSS to 'educate' children of illegal immigrants even though it has policies/procedures that outlaw U.S. children living in other Georgia counties from attending GCPSS schools. And if you can't believe the $15 MILLION in 2011 number, have GCPSS provide its documented number!

Check out the 08/17/10 AJ/C article entitled EDUCATING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IS COSTLY for additional details.
