Legal Issues for School Districts Related to the Education of Undocumented Children is a short publication from the National Education Association and the National School Boards Association that answers thirteen questions schools and school districts might have about this issue.
It’s available as a free downloadable PDF file.
Here’s what NEA’s news release says:
Sixteen national education organizations have signed on to the guide, “Legal Issues for School Districts Related to the Education of Undocumented Children.” The publication will go to every school district in the United States and is available on the NSBA and NEA Web sites. The guide provides answers to 13 questions that school districts face as they navigate the growing trend of undocumented student enrollment.
“America’s classrooms are changing, and we need to change too,” said NEA President Dennis Van Roekel. “We must strengthen our school districts and the services they can provide to undocumented students.”
