Educating Foreigners Too High of a Price

June 04, 1997

Re "Out of the Mouths of Babes" (May 27): Laura Angelica Simon, who legally immigrated into the United States at age 6, is a true example of self-attainment under our school system.

However, she is very wrong to use her U.S.-financed education for the purpose of supporting the education of children from other countries with U.S. tax money.

Kudos to Laura Simon. What an inspiration she is. She proves that Proposition 187 is a disaster.

Think how much Latino talent is wasted, how much potential is unrealized because of discrimination. Hoover Elementary, where Simon teaches, used to be a safe haven. Now it is a place of dissension.
