Katy ISD is a 60.6% minority school district.  As such, one can expect the plethora of Title I, Bilingual and ESL classes for students. 

In my opinion, having grown up and taught in a Texas school district with similar minority numbers, native Spanish speaking students would be much better off if they were to be mainstreamed into the regular school population rather than being shunted off into bilingual classes.  They will learn to speak English much faster, which is what their parents should want for them so that they can become a part of the American economic system and become acculturated.

All minority students living in America and attending school from the first grade have had and will have the same opportunity to become academically educated as all other students as long as they take advantage of the opportunity.  Mary McGarr
