Education costs for refugees

With Governor Deal's plans to increase education spending by $547 million next year, let's take a look at  what part of our education costs go to refugee resettlement in this state.


In 2004 we let 2205 refugees into DeKalb and Fulton counties.  Let's assume that the immigrants marry and have 4 children.  Let's look at the effect on the school systems of DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett at 6,7,8, and 9 years after their arrival:




2004 + 6 yrs = 2010 1st child per couple equals 1102 children.
2004 + 7 yrs = 2011  2nd child per couple equals 2204 children
2004 + 8 yrs = 2012 3rd child per couple equals 3306 children
2004 + 9 yrs  = 2013 4th child per couple equals 4408 children

4408 children X $10,000 per child school cost = $44.08 million

Bear in mind that each year the program continues the cost increases by the new multiple of immigrants entering under the program.  We are now seeing the consequences of the 3rd generation under this program.

Furthermore, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett County schools have a combined graduation rate of approximately 60%. Gwinnett conducts education in over 20 languages. DeKalb and Fulton have similar language barriers to overcome. In Gwinnett county over 100 different languages and dialects are spoken. Bear in mind, these 3 metro counties have one of the highest real estate foreclosure rates in the entire country. The county schools are financed on the local level almost exclusively from real property taxes.

Refugee education costs must be reduced for the sake of OUR OWN CHILDREN. Georgia takes on a disproportionate amount of refugees!

This is not some problem way off in Washington D.C., this is local. Please help us give Georgia some Refugee Resettlement RELIEF!

These three metro regions have one of the most astounding land dispossession rates in the whole nation. The district schools are financed on the neighborhood level solely from genuine property charges.
