The Obama administration is preparing the nationís schools to accept thousands of new students who illegally crossed the southwest border and are now awaiting trials on their possible deportations.


A fact sheet from the Department of Education sent to states and schools on Monday highlights the childrenís right to attend public school.


It says all children in the United States ďare entitled to equal access to a public elementary and secondary education, regardless of their or their parentsí actual or perceived national origin, citizenship, or immigration status.Ē
The prospect of tens of thousands of children mostly from Central American countries attending school as they wait for their immigration status to be decided has the potential to be explosive after this summerís emotional public debate about the border.


Several Republican governors have blasted the federal government for releasing many of the minors to sponsors in their home states, and protests in which demonstrators blocked buses from delivering immigrants to shelters erupted in June and July.


Now some state officials are worried about the additional costs they'll endure from educating the children.


"There are many consequences of the federal governmentís failure to secure the border and the fiscal impact of educating unaccompanied alien children is certainly one of them," said Travis Considine, a spokesman for Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R).


Around 63,000 children, mostly from the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, have been apprehended this year trying to cross the border.


Many are in the 150 or so shelters operated around the country by the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Education said those children would attend classes in those facilities.


A total of 37,477 children have been released to an appropriate adult sponsor, usually a parent, relative or family friend, according to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Those children, who have been settled in all 50 states, would all be eligible to attend public school.


Many of the children could be spending the next school year in the United States.


Francisco Negron, general council for the National School Board Association, said there is no question that schools will accommodate the children.


"Public schools are keenly aware of their obligations to follow the law," he said, the children "come to us to receive their services and they'll get them."

But Michael Zola, head of federal advocacy for the school board association, said many question remain about the placement of the children and how long they will stay.

"A lot of folks at the local level want to know with a better sense of granularity what those actual numbers are for planning purposes," he said.
The average immigration proceeding in the past has taken an average of more than 500 days, but the administration has given priority to the children to move to the front of the line, in an attempt to speed up the deportation process.
