“No one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites, but the prediction that new Hispanic immigrants will have low-IQ children and grandchildren is difficult to argue against.”..... in Heritage Report
“The average IQ of immigrants in the United States is substantially lower than that of the white native population, and the difference is likely to persist over several generations. The consequences are a lack of socioeconomic assimilation among low-IQ immigrant groups, more underclass behavior, less social trust, and an increase in the proportion of unskilled workers in the American labor market.” Co-author if Heritage study Jason Richwine,

The Tennessean-Apr 30, 2013
FRANKLIN — Conservatives came from far and wide Tuesday night to rail against Common Core standards, calling them academically weak and a threat to parents’ control over their children’s education.
Kevin Kookogey, who led the “Confronting Common Core” event, entered to Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall.” Other speakers included Jamie Gass of the Pioneer Institute, Bill Evers of the Hoover Institution, Lindsey Burke of the Heritage Foundation, and Emmet McGroarty and Jane Robbins, both of the American Principles Project.
Some parents angry
Some of the fervor surfaced during a Common Core meeting Monday at The People’s Church in Franklin. The meeting filled up two weeks after organizers posted an online invitation.
At Monday’s meeting, in which the standards were presented by Jamie Woodson, president of the State Collaborative on Reforming Education, TWoodson recounted how the state in 2009 came to adopt the Common Core Standards initiative, which was due in part because the state received an “F” in 2007 for truth in advertising about student proficiency.
