In September of 1977, a class action suit Plyler v. Doe, was filed on behalf of illegal immigrant children, who were at the time residing in Smith County, Texas. The parents of these children, who were currently working in the country illegally, argued that their children had just as much right to an education, as the children of legal citizens who paid taxes, and worked here lawfully. After several years of litigation the battle ended in 1982, when the Supreme court ruled that it would be mandatory for every state in the nation to educate any child that showed up for class, regardless of legal status, and that the financial responsibility of their education shall rest solely on the taxpayers of those states. Since that ruling was set forth, this country’s public education system has been sent rocketing into a downward spiral of unrelenting despair. However, the courts ruling included two provisions which were to act as an exit strategy, should this bold new decision happen to bring about any devastating consequences. The provisions are stated as follows: “Congress can reverse the decision if these illegal alien students prove to be a financial hardship to taxpayers, and if the students who are here legally residing in the United States begin to have their own education negatively impacted by the presence of illegal alien students.” It would be safe to say that both of these conditions are present in practically every public school, in every state in the country. We are now well past the point of simply reversing this infamous ruling to solve our current education crisis. There is now a dire need for a complete re-structuring of our public education policy, and curriculum. Not to mention, the growing concern over the willful neglect to provide adequate security for students and teachers, in order to protect them from interior or exterior attacks. A vast majority of the residents in this country both legal, and illegal, have utilized the benefits of America’s public education system at one time or another. Yet, we have also stood idly by, while our children’s futures have fallen victim to the disease of mass immigration, leaving us with no hint of resuscitation in the foreseeable future. Once again, solidifying validity in the belief that importing massive amounts of poverty stricken people with no hope of finding financial stability will only enhance the spread of poverty even further, thus, creating a permanent underclass, and severely widening the socio-economic gap. When you add a language barrier into the equation, and an unwillingness to cooperate from the position most in need, you are virtually begging for an educational meltdown; and the cold truth continues to reveal that the money has dried up, the schools have filled up, and the people are fed up!
