INS agents raided all the McDonald’s in the greater Reno area today and arrested numerous employees for being in the country illegally. At my school a number of parents came and removed their kids from school so that police would not come and get them – or so that the students wouldn’t go home and get picked up at their homes by waiting INS agents (a rumor being spread). At my daughter’s high school – announcements were made by administration asking for teachers to volunteer to spend the night at school so students whose parents were arrested would have a place to stay.
I wonder how many times “Sorry kids, but we can’t spend time discussing this, we have to be ready for the test.” will be uttered by teachers tomorrow?
Learning is messy!
