NYC to enroll more than 1,000 cross-border youth in public schools as city deals with overcrowded classrooms

New York City officials are expected to enroll at least 1,000 young commuters – most of whom arrived on migrant buses sent from Texas by Gov. Greg Abbott (R) – in public schools across the five boroughs as the city wonders how to reduce overcrowding classrooms.

Buses packed with border crossings in New York – the nation’s largest sanctuary city that protects and protects illegal aliens from arrest and deportation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

Now New York City officials say they will enroll at least 1,000 cross-border youth in public schools from Manhattan to Queens before the start of the school year on Sept. 8, according to the New York Post:

The school districts expecting the biggest influxes are Districts 2 and 3 — or most manhattan — as well as District 10 in the northwest bronxBorough 14 to Williamsburg and Greenpointand Districts 24 and 30 in eastern queens. [Emphasis added]

“Today we are all New Yorkers”, Schools Chancellor David Banks said, “and it’s essential that we do all we can to support these families who really need us”. [Emphasis added]

The Chancellor also led a charge recruit additional bilingual teachers — including two meetings with leaders of the Dominican Republic since the beginning of the summer. [Emphasis added]

The public school enrollment plan for frontier youth comes on top of New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s promise to enroll newcomers in the city’s high-priced Catholic schools.

“These people just want to settle down,” Dolan said last week as he greeted migrant buses in New York. “They want a normal life. And they are grateful to be here and having their children in school is a big priority.

The arrival of potentially thousands of young commuters the city will enroll in its public school system comes as officials grapple with how to implement new limits on classroom sizes passed by the state legislature this year. .

Prior to the adoption of the new limits, caps in New York ranged from 25 students for kindergarten classes to 34 students for high school classes. The latest plan, however, reduced those caps to 20 students for kindergarten through third grade, 23 students for fourth through eighth grades, and 25 students for high school grades.

Already, nearly 920,000 students are enrolled in the New York public school system.

In July, Mayor Eric Adams (D) told New Yorkers to ‘get on board’ to have their schools, neighborhoods, hospitals and infrastructure stretched to their limits due to illegal immigration to the city .

“We can’t have the history, ‘I think people should be housed, but don’t house them in my block’. Everyone’s block is going to be impacted by this,” Adams said.

“Our schools are going to be impacted, our healthcare system is going to be impacted, our infrastructure is going to be impacted…we’re going to need all New Yorkers to be with us on this,” he continued.

Last week, Breitbart News reported that New York City officials plan to house commuters arriving on migrant buses in about 6,000 luxury hotel rooms. The plan comes as rents for New Yorkers have skyrocketed to unsustainable levels, pushing working and middle-class communities out of the city and into surrounding suburbs.

In June, rents in New York City averaged $3,500 a month. By borough, the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan is now $4,100, the average rent in Brooklyn is now well over $3,000 per month, and the average rent in Queens is now around $2,500 per month.
