    That's interesting. I taught in the inner city with all of the above, but I never heard of any of the "just have babies" mentality. The families of my students were, for the most part, very interested in having their kids get the best education possible, which was the reason most of them had brought their kids here from their home countries. This is in Northern California so I imagine the culture is very different from the South, but I still find it hard to imagine immigrant parents having this mentality, who in my experience are extremely hard-working and strive to pass this on to their kids.
