Hattier said they have already been dealing with newly arrived foreign students and it poses a problem for the district.
“One of our high schools last year took in 50 kids, virtually all of whom were Hispanic, virtually all of whom were Guatemalan or Honduran, many of whom did not speak proper English and had no education. It forced our local high school to completely revamp what they were doing. It forced them to take teachers that were already working with our existing population and reassign them.”
