Olivas on Plyler v. Doe and the Maryland DREAM Act

"Midday" with Dan Rodricks on WYPR's daily public affairs program today featured Professor Michael Olivas, author of No Undocumented Child Left Behind (2011).  In November, voters will decide the fate of Maryland's version of the DREAM Act, which would grant in-state college tuition discounts to the children of undocumented immigrants who have graduated from the state's high schools. On this show, Professor Olivas discusses Plyler v. Doe (1982), the Supreme Court case that made it possible for undocumented children to enroll in public schools and the highly-charged political and legal battles that have ensued, including access to higher education.
