As the leaders of some of the nation’s largest K-12 education systems, we oppose any plan to separate families at the United States-Mexico border. The trauma that occurs when children are taken from their parents has a profound and negative effect on every aspect of their lives, including the time they spend in school.
We believe all children should be free to learn, free from fear, and urge President Trump and Congress to enact comprehensive bipartisan immigration reform.
