    No Immigration Papers, No School, Many New York Districts Sa

    No Immigration Papers, No School, Many New York Districts Say

    By NINA BERNSTEIN
    Published: July 22, 2010

    Three decades after the Supreme Court ruled that immigration violations cannot be used as a basis to deny children equal access to a public school education, one in five school districts in New York State is routinely requiring a child’s immigration papers as a prerequisite to enrollment, or asking parents for information that only lawful immigrants can provide.

    The State Department of Education in Albany. The Constitution guarantees a public education even to children here illegally.

    The New York Civil Liberties Union, which culled a list of 139 such districts from hundreds of registration forms and instructions posted online, has not found any children turned away for lack of immigration paperwork. But it warned in a letter to the state’s education commissioner on Wednesday that the requirements listed by many registrars, however free of discriminatory intent, “will inevitably discourage families from enrolling in school for fear that they would be reported to federal immigration authorities.

    AH - The demise of yet another school system. New York State was considered the top of the nation with the highest standards and requirements back in the '60's.

    Every school district in the country should demand to see proof of citizenship to sign up for school.

    Going hack to school
    HS kids' info bared

    It was a technical foul.

    Hackers accessed the personal information of more than 2,400 Brooklyn Tech HS students and posted it on the school's Web site, The Post has learned.

    The startling security breach put students' names, addresses and birth dates -- and, in many cases, their Social Security numbers and citizenship status -- in the public domain, Department of Education officials said.

    It was at least the third hack attack this year on the Fort Greene school's Web site but the first to expose students to potential harm.

    "It's more serious because it has to do with our Social Security numbers and identity theft," said 17-year-old Jessica Tan, a junior. "I think it crosses the line. Students are more creeped out than think it's funny."

    Education officials said that, in January, an assistant principal uploaded students' PSAT scores -- along with their personal information -- to a Web site that is used by teachers in the English department and not password protected.

    Someone accessed the data and posted it to the regular school Web site.

    The posted data comprised 2,416 names, 2,416 home addresses and 103 Social Security numbers.

    No one is sure how long the information had been on the site before the breach was reported two weeks ago by a student.

    "What happened is illegal. The police should be involved, and the students should be expelled, and the students should get more than a night in jail," said Simon Yousoufov, an 18-year-old senior.

    "I'm definitely going to be more careful in giving information to the school."

    Education officials put the blame squarely on the assistant principal, who has since received federal privacy-act training.

    They declined to reveal her identity.

    "The assistant principal made a serious error in judgment, undermining the trust between students and school officials," said DOE spokesman Matthew Mittenthal. "We fully understand the anxiety this disclosure has caused for students and families."

    Earlier this year, a hacker posing as a school administrator posted a letter on the school's site saying school was canceled the next day.

    A subsequent prank left Lil' Wayne lyrics and other silly items on an internal school Web site.

    How is it that only 103 had SS#s I wonder? Could it be the rest are ILLEGAL ALIENS? I wouldn't doubt it.

    No Immigration Papers

    I have heard of a plan to require English competency for enrollment in school. The NON English speakers would be required to buy their own tutors to learn the English language before being enrolled.
    I really like this idea. The ESL teachers will soon outnumber the English teachers in our public schools. Just one SMALL elementary near me employs 4 ESL teachers. That is 4 too many.
