Back to School Time… for ILLEGAL Aliens?

Depending on where in the United States you live, K-12 students are either already heading back to school or preparing to do so soon. But some schools are facing a unique challenge this year if they happen to have an immigration enforcement detention center holding large numbers of illegal immigrant children within their district. That’s the case with the San Benito, Texas school district. They are in the process of dispatching dozens of bilingual teachers and mobile classroom units to provide an education for hundreds of children in the detention center near them. It’s a serious strain on both personnel and resources, but federal law stipulates that they have to provide an education for any child that applies, regardless of immigration status. The question is, did all of these kids apply? And how do they cover the surge in demands for both teachers and educational materials?
