Schools cant cope with immigrants

Belfast Correspondent reports.

The Ulster Teachers Union has warned that, Ulster schools are in "dire
need" of support to enable them to cope with the growing number of migrant
pupils. An estimated 2,679 have enrolled this year alone. Spokeswoman
Avril Hall-Callaghan, said it was scandalous that there was no official
policy for this part of the education service. The Department of
Education, who have already cut next years budget, say it is in the final
stages of developing a policy for schoolchildren whose first language is
not English. Ulster BNP spokesman Kieran Dinsmore argued, that this will
mean that the already reduced budget for local children's education is
going to take another cut to educate the children of foreign nationals.

It would appear that the UK Government believes their immigration policy
is there to house, employ, educate and keep healthy anybody across the
globe who wants to get these things for free while ignoring the problems
in these areas faced by the people of Northern Ireland and the rest of the
UK. In fact such a policy operates to the detriment of our own people.

Second class again

Back in October, Ulster BNP alerted visitors to Regional Voices that 3.2
million had been set aside to stop immigrant children becoming frustrated
in schools because they could not speak or understand English, just weeks
after the education budget had been cut for local youngsters. It is not
the immigrants or their children who are to blame for this sorry situation
but the scoundrels in Westminster who have not just let it happen but
encouraged it to happen. Thats why more and more people are rejecting the
politics of the old gang parties and joining the fasted growing party in
the UK the British National Party.
