In response to the news about how a lesson about illegal aliens was shared with 3rd grades students in a George public school, the developer, EdHelper.com, responded to our request to an interview about this matter:
Thank you for contacting edHelper about the immigration article. We have received a lot of feedback on this article and the question that was discussed we felt was in poor judgment and has been removed from our website. The main goal of the article was to teach comprehension and also that people need permission before going to another country.
edHelper has over 50 articles that tries to teach about immigration in the United States (http://edhelper.com/immigration.htm).
We find this statement a little vague in its explanation and we have emailed them with the following request:
I would like more information about this since I think your statement here does not address the main issue as to the sensitivity of this lesson. Can someone in your office contact me via email?Thank you.Julio
