Immigration and Public Education

A Supreme Court Case interpretation resulted in the following rules for Public Educators:

  1. must provide an equal education to all children, regardless of citizenship status (the 14th Amendment was used as the basis for the Plyler case);
  2. are prohibited from asking for documentation of a child’s immigration status;
  3. cannot use Social Security numbers as a prerequisite for enrollment; and
  4. are forbidden from sharing any information about a child’s immigration status with any individual or institution, including government agencies that enforce the immigration laws.
