Georgia Law Cuts Free ESL Courses for Immigrants

Atlanta Latino, Judith Martnez Posted: Dec 20, 2009

A new state law aimed at denying English language education to undocumented immigrants in Georgia will impact hundreds of students, reports the Atlanta Latino. HB2 will take effect on January 1 and will require higher education institutions to inquire about the immigration status of prospective students for English as a Second Language (ESL) and the GED diploma.

Undocumented students would be able to attend the classes if they pay. The Atlanta Latino reported there were 100,000 students enrolled in higher education institutions in 2009. Over 20,000 attended ESL classes that year.
