    Stop the stupid, racist profiling. Put the kids in the regular, good schools.

    From your article:

    Represented by the Pennsylvania branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, the six refugees sued Lancaster schools in federal court, saying they were dumped in a disciplinary school and are being denied access to a quality education. The students range in age from 17 to 21, and hail from Somalia, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Burma.

    Another attempt to deflect from the real problem! They wouldn't be in a continuation school if their needs/behavior/skills/language fluency didn't warrant it!

    I don't see that this has anything to do with disiplinary issues, but they were assigned to that school because the other did not meet their needs or they did not meet the qualifications. It seems neither school adequately addresses their needs.

    Correct. Most continuation schools are there to help those who can't quite handle regular school, and being from another country, maybe their education didn't meet the basic requirements of a regular school. These schools serve as remedial resources! Gee! The schools must be better then what they were used to!

    Why don't they enroll in night school or remedial classes in their local community college? Neither of the schools seem appropriate - the one they are thrown in sounds like an alternative school, meant for kids with behavioral problems, and regular high school is for younger people - some of these people are over twenty years old and have no business attending school alongside a 14 year old kid.

    Well when our Government thumbs their nose at a biblical principal "Never give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them with their feet and then turn around and attack you.".......... this will only get worse under Hillary.
