SOMALIS OVERBURDEN SCHOOL SYSTEM(COLORADO)

SOON THEY WILL NEED FOOT WASHING STATIONS AND PRAYER ROOMS
A senior at Greeley West High School, Abdi is a Somali and, although she is thousands of miles from her homeland, she is far from alone. The 17-year-old is one of 434 refugee students who attend schools in the district. Her two sisters and a brother are among them, part of an immigrant population that includes thousands more students who speak dozens of different languages. More than a quarter of District 6 students are learning English as a second language.

Their swelling ranks have helped to create one of the more diverse student bodies in Colorado. But there's a high cost associated with educating these children, an expense that is fast becoming an unmanageable burden for District 6, leaving it with fewer dollars for other programs.

Teacher salaries and specialized training, even school supplies
