The definition of immigration has developed to include a profound understanding of migration. Immigration has put an emphasis on the effects of school funding. Evidence suggests that the largest challenge in school funding is the result of increase in migrant children in schools. As a result, as the South Carolina State Superintendent of Instruction a policy must be in place for the anticipated increase of immigrant children.
Many South Carolina voters agree that increase immigration has a profound impact on taxpayers. For example, immigrants impose costs on state government by using more in government services than they pay in taxes (Huddle, 1997). This causes taxes in taxpayers households to soar tremendously. Due to the increase in immigrants, Huddle (1997) found that low-skill American workers were moved from their jobs. Due to the displacement, taxpayers paid an abundance amount of money in public assistance. The public assistance consisted of Medicaid, unemployment compensation, and food stamps. Evidence suggests that South Carolina voters are likely to resist increased immigration due to the tremendous increase in taxes.
As the South Carolina State Superintendent of Instruction, Contreras (2002) says that sharing the factors that play a vital role in meeting the needs of immigrant students will be most effective in providing information to the senior-level staff.

You present a persuasive argument for the abandonment of the 5-paragraph essay and suggest a new format for presenting an argument... However, you did not provide much information on what is expected to go in between your introduction and conclusion? You suggested this format opens the essay to compare/contrast, cause/effect, analysis, etc... but how do you suggest students structure an essay with these approaches in practice? Any piece of writing needs some structure and main ideas that are then supported with various pieces of evidence (whether you are writing a historical thesis or a persuasive essay)... If you are abandoning a "main idea followed by supporting evidence" format, what do you propose should take its place? Or perhaps my understanding of the 5-paragraph essay you are speaking of is incorrect?
