June's By the Numbers

June , 2006

According to new analysis by the research company Standard & Poor’s, taxes paid by illegal workers who work under false Social Security numbers typically go directly to the federal level, where they are invested in an “earnings suspense file.” If those taxes were diverted to state and local governments, says the report, they could help fund education.

$7.2 billion:
Taxes credited in 2003 to a trust fund based on wage items placed in the suspense file

$1.8 million:
Number of undocumented students in U.S. school districts

$11.2 billion:
Cost per year to educate those students

    Beyond Invert and Multiply, Grades 3-6

    This resource builds on the foundational understandings that are described in Beyond Pizzas and Pies: 10 Essential Strategies for Supporting Fraction Sense and applies them to situations involving fraction computation. The eight stand-alone chapters are organized within the same friendly, easily accessible framework as Beyond Pizzas and Pies. Each chapter offers classroom activities for investigating the meaning of fractions; fractions as numbers; fraction addition and subtraction; fraction multiplication and division; and classroom discussions on fractions. Activities are connected to the Common Core State Standards and include reproducibles. The accompanying DVD brings to life many of the activities in the book, featuring more than 30 authentic classroom video clips
