Comment: Children Vs Educators The Christian Science Monitor reports that Hispanic students have started vanishing from Alabama public schools. Over 2,000 Hispanic students, around 7% of the student population, failed to show up at Alabama schools on Monday. "American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten said Alabama has crossed an unprecedented line, waging a political battle over immigration on the backs of children. 'Parents are afraid to drive their kids to school, [fearing] that something will happen and they won't be able to care for their children," she said. "Nobody wins when a law pushes children into the shadow of society. Teachers should be safety nets, not snitches. Guardians, not guards.' " Is this a humanitarian disaster in the making?
