Albany School Board Member Miriam Walden wrote a commentary on the residence checking story:
“There are no illegal children, students or people. They all belong here on our planet. They all have a right to learn. The issue is only one of residency documentation — an artificial problem that is caused by our immoral system of state funding for education, not by parents or students on their own. For a full description of my concerns about this issue and my response to the “overcrowding” complaints, please see my blog at http://www.miriamwalden.blogspot.com. ”
