  • IDK-to me that sounds pretty good. To people on the right though it's socialism...or socilicism..or communisim, or whatever word they use/spell incorrectly.

    Dream Act seems like common sense to me, it's fair, it's compassionate, it's the right thing to do. Thanks for posting this.

  • Dream act
    Please do not equate right wingers to idiots.The Dream Act is a
    Matter of national survival every bit as much as it is the right thing
    To do. We need to keep the brains in the United States.

  • Yawwwn! Didn't NCLB (and every other piece of federal ED legislation) promise the same thing?

    You'd think that what happens in Washington had no effect whatever on what goes on in a classroom between students and their teachers.
