Hispanic children cited in Hamblen County tax crunch; County Commissioner suggests segregation
Hamblen County "has the largest school system in the Lakeway Area and more migrant students than any county in the state."
"The schools have more and more Hispanic students every year. While some aid is available to teach these children, it is primarily a local responsibility."
"Putting all the Hispanic children into one school, as County Commissioner Tom Lowe suggested, is not only unworkable but illegal, school officials said."
"Faced with an expected 250-300 more students and costly mandates from the state, the county school board approved a budget they said was lean but would be adequate for the schools' needs."
