Council to discuss students in D.C. schools illegally
WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown says he is trying to determine why students from Maryland and Virginia are attending the city's public schools illegally.
Brown has invited eight witnesses to appear before a committee on Thursday to discuss why parents from other states are dropping off their children in D.C. schools without paying tuition. He tells The Washington Times that the issue was raised with him by parents and that license plates from neighboring states often to turn up at city schools in the morning.
Brown introduced a bill last spring designed to improve enforcement of school residency laws. His office says the bill is not designed to look into whether someone is in the country illegally, but to see if they are a city resident.
