Alien Children's Right to a Free Public School Education.
Siegel, Peter; Feinberg, Rosa Castro
The meaning of the Supreme Court's decision affirming the rights of undocumented alien children to attend public schools free of charge and the impact of this and recent decisions on other issues relating to national origin minority students are discussed in this memorandum. Among the other issues are the status of non-immigrant children legally present in the country, a school district's rights and responsibilities in the matters of student visas, I-20's, and English language proficiency, and the meaning of the term "national origin discrimination."
