Estimated Cost of K-12 Public Education for Unaccompanied Alien Children

NOTE: In a time when TN state departments are being asked to cut back on expenditures, is the state REALLY ready to have to spend $13.42 Million??  Where will that money from??  What will have to be cut to provide to funding for this unanticipated expense??  Remember, Tennessee did not know these unaccompanied minors were even coming to the state, when they were coming, or where they ended up.  Just one more example of the federal government IMPOSING its will on the State of TN.  Obviously state sovereignty has NO meaning any more.

September is coming and so is the start of a new school year. This year, there will be almost 37,000 “unaccompanied” alien minors who will be enrolling in public school in the United States. These kids will require special Limited English Proficient (LEP) classes conducted in Spanish, or in other languages indigenous to Central American, as well as other taxpayer funded services, such as free and reduced school meals. Once again the costs of federal government’s failed immigration policies are borne at the local level, and the nation’s public school system is where the costs are most visible.
