The U.S. Justice Department has requested information from all Alabama schools. As Ed Week reports:
Among other things, the letter requests records of enrollment by race and lists of students who have withdrawn since the beginning of the school year, broken down by race, national origin and whether they are classified as English Language Learners. The department also wants a list of unexplained absences since the law took effect on September 27.
I’m making these new additions to The Best Resources To Learn About Alabama’s Awful Immigration Law (& Its Impact On Schools):
Feds Investigating Ala. School Enrollment in Wake of Immigration Law is from Education Week.
Feds Request Data On All Alabama Students is from NPR.
For Undocumented Workers, It’s Not-so-Sweet Home Alabama is a video report, and transcript, from the PBS News Hour.
