Justice Department Orders No Questions Be Asked of Loudoun's Unaccompanied Alien Students

September 19, 2014

In classic newspeak straight from George Orwell's 1984, the federal authorities say they are seeking "flexibility" when they really prohibit any inquiries whatsoever about a whole catergory of normal routine questions we ask everybody else as a precondition of enrollment in the local school district.

Directly from the official website of the federal Department of Education:

Secretary Arne Duncan and Attorney General Eric Holder today announced updated guidance to assist public elementary and secondary schools to ensure enrollment processes are consistent with the law and fulfill their obligation to provide all children-no matter their background-equal access to an education

"We want to be sure every school leader understands the legal requirements under the Constitution and federal laws, and it is our hope that this update will address some of the misperceptions out there," said Secretary Arne Duncan. "The message here is clear: let all children who live in your district enroll in your public schools."
