I can't get my daughter into our district's public pre-school program, because, she speaks ENGLISH as a first language. Uggghhh!!! It's not my fault that people move to this country, refuse to learn the language, and then refuse to teach it to their kids. Then those kids are considered "at risk" and are given higher priority. So the rest of us that actually PAY the property taxes so that their kids can go to school in the first place - are just screwed. It was the same with my older daughter when I tried to get her into the summer day camps through the city's Parks and Recreation programs. Mexican kids who didn't speak English were given first priority. I'm not by any means, a fan of President Trump, but, I'm beginning to applaud his kicking all of the illegals out of the country.
I know this post sounds like I'm racist and/or bigoted. I'm not. I'm just super-frustrated that my child is denied education and learning, because, she freakin' speaks English.
