I have great empathy for the thousands of unaccompanied children flooding the nation, but I have greater concern for the effect on public schools (“US schools -and students – will pay a price for Biden’s open borders for minors,” New York Post, Mar. 17).
The nation’s largest school districts were already failing to provide a basic education for too many students. The influx of newly-arrived minors will make the job of teachers even more difficult. We have a responsibility to put the needs of our own first.
If the flood of newcomers continues, parents will enroll their own children in private and religious schools so that their education does not suffer.
