MADISON, Wis. – The Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District recently sent an email to families assuring that its schools are “safe places that embrace all students and families, regardless of citizenship and national origin.”
Several school districts across the state have communicated the same, that “all students, regardless of immigration status,” are entitled to a free public education.
Some taxpayers are voicing their concerns about the “free” education to students whose families have broken the nation’s immigration laws.
“What (the school district) is doing is urging illegals to attend school,” a Middleton-Cross Plains school district resident, who identified himself as Dick, told Wisconsin Watchdog on Wednesday on the Dan Conry Show, on NewsTalk 1310 WIBA. “It’s my taxpayer money.”
“If the school administration wants to have illegal aliens attending school at taxpayers’ expense, hey, take it out of your salary, Mr. Superintendent, and the teachers who want this sort of thing. … The law says they should not be here.”
The district’s superintendent did not return calls seeking comment on the communication.
