Big Education: Weekend Read

Economic journalist Ed Rubenstein's latest hot-off-the-press monograph is titled, The Burden of Plyler v. Doe.

Overview: "Public education is the largest expense state and local governments incur on behalf of illegal aliens. It has been estimated that immigration will account for 96 percent of the increase in the school-age population in the United States over the next 50 years. Illegal aliens will account for as much as half of the increase.

In 1982, in the Plyler v. Doe decision, the United States Supreme Court struck down a Texas statute denying funding for education to children who were illegal immigrants. Most legal scholars see Pyler v. Doe as a naked usurpation of Congressional powers - an attempt to make up for the legislative branch's inability or unwillingness to deal with the illegal alien problem. It stands as a monument to judicial activism.

This article explores the tremendous fiscal cost associated with bilingual education and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs."

It's meaty and informative.

Update: Here's an op ed version of this piece, tying it to Arizona.
