I can't really give a firm yes or no answer. My first instinct is to say no, because I think that illegal immigrants should be deported. But since our government wants to coddle them instead of sending them home, I think they should be in school. What's worse than an illegal immigrant? An illegal immigrant that cannot speak or write English. I think every child deserves a basic education, regardless of the circumstances, and I think keeping them out of school because their parents chose to bring them here is unfairly punishing the children. They won't get an education in their home country because the government won't send them home, so this is all they have. I don't agree with college education, and I definitely don't agree with California's new law that allows illegals to receive financial aid.
