THE SALINA JOURNAL NATION MONDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1996 B5 T IMMIGRATION No Questions Asked New York school smooths path for new immigrants — regardless of legal status By KAREN MATTHEWS The Associated Press I EW YORK — As the Tal- iban religious army sweeps through Afghanistan closing schools for girls, Lourdes Borrows expects a few of these youngsters to end up at her high school. Burrows is principal of the Newcomers High School and Academy for New Americans, one of a handful of public high schools in the country devoted to the education of recent immigrants. "We try to keep abreast of whatever is happening overseas," Burrows said, "because we'll be getting an influx." At a time when the national mood is turning against immigrants — new legislation will stiffen penalties for illegal immigration and make it harder for even legal immigrants to receive welfare — these schools are run by people who believe in catering to newcomers, not raising the fence. No questions are asked about Newcomers students' legal status, though many are no doubt undocumented. "My only charge is to maximize the potential of every student who comes into this building," said Burrows, an energetic woman who retains the accent of her native Cuba. "What I want to do is teach them to be good Americans." Now in its second year, the school is doing well, with more The Associated Press Yulica Calvo (right) and classmate Kleber Pavora, both from Ecuador, discuss the U.S. Constitution during a recent social studies class at the Newcomer School in the Queens borough of New York. than 70 percent of the students who took last year's state Regents exams in math and chemistry passing. Situated in the gritty, industrial neighborhood of Long Island City, Queens, the Newcomers School has a growing population of 600-odd students who generally have been in the United States less than a year. About half are Spanish-speaking; the rest speak an assortment of tongues including Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Portuguese and Urdu. Some classes are taught in pupils' native languages and others in English. And some instructors use both, as civics teacher Orlando Sarmiento did for a recent lesson about the Constitution. He wrote on the board: "How does the Constitution provide a blueprint for the American government?" "Que es blueprint?" Sarmiento asked as hands went up. "Que es preamble? Una intro- duccion. The preamble is an in 1 troduction. When you write an essay for me you have to include an introduction to let me know what the paper is going to be about." Haltingly, the students read the words — "insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense" — and Sarmiento drew out their meanings. "What is to 'promote the general welfare?'" he asked. "What is welfare?" "Bienestar," a girl suggested — well being. The teacher nodded. "Not to be confused with welfare programs," he said. Down the hall in Angie Margiotta's English as a Second Language class, students who had been in the United States as iit- tle as a week or two struggled with the past tense. Margiotta spoke clearly and slowly, her enthusiasm compensating for the classroom's peeling blue paint. "What did you do last night?" she asked. "Did you swim? Did you drive a car?" She patiently corrected a girl who wrote on the board, "I didn't drived." New York has traditionally been more hospitable to newcomers, and the city's Republican mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, is carving a niche as his party's foremost immigration advocate. Nevertheless, there is opposition to the Newcomers School. The New York Civil Rights Coalition, which has also battled ethnic-themed dormitories at Cornell University and an all- girls' New York City public school, filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights when the Newcomers School opened last year. V ENVIRONMENT Seminars at resorts prove costly Probe identifies $1.4 million in 'questionable' EPA training expenses By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency has spent more than $1 million since 1993 on training seminars at ritzy resorts or on subjects unrelated to environment such as "defensive driving" or speed-reading courses, according to congressional investigators. Posh inns in West Virginia, a beach-front hotel in Puerto Rico and a mountain resort in Colorado were among venues chosen for classes and conferences, Republican investigators with the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee reported. Training sessions included: • Four-day seminars on improving managers' productivity, held at various resorts in West Virginia and Maryland. Cost: $20,000 per seminar. • A $7,000, one-day session at a beach hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to train EPA lawyers on preparing for administrative hearings. The committee said it identified $1.4 million in "questionable" EPA training expenses between 1993 and 1995. "What is especially offensive about EPA's action is that the Clinton administration has repeatedly requested increases in EPA's budget while doing nothing to curb this wasteful spending," Clinger charged.
