As schools are registering students for the next school year, IDRA is releasing this new infographic as a reminder that public schools, by law, must serve all children.
Not only should undocumented students not be discouraged from attending, they are required to attend school under the state's compulsory education laws.
And parents should be assured that the
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act restricts schools from sharing information with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).
At IDRA, we are working to strengthen schools to work for all children, families and communities. Help us make this goal a reality for every child; we simply cannot afford the alternatives.
Denying children of undocumented workers access to an education is unconstitutional and against the law.
This infographic in full color and bilingual is available on IDRA's website along with many other resources for schools and advocates. We encourage you to share them across your networks.
