HOUSTON, Texas -- This school year, Texas taxpayers will likely be on the hook for approximately $45 million to educate the wave of Central American children who entered the U.S. illegally during recent months. Thousands of unaccompanied minors are expected to attend Texas public schools this year. Despite this, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is unable to put plans in place for accommodating the minors--the federal government has not revealed the number of foreign students to expect in each school district.
A TEA spokeswoman told Breitbart Texas, "We just don't know at this point whether to expect the children to enroll or not. It's hard to plan. We keep hoping for some more definitive information, but we just don't have it at this point."
