Recent reports of discrimination have led civil rights groups to request that the U.S. Justice Department investigate at least 2 alleged instances of North Carolina schools refusing admission to immigrant children. The official complaint stated that school administrators informed two 17-year-old immigrants they could not be enrolled at a local high school as they were "too old." Additional instances of immigrant discrimination have been reported in other classrooms and schools as well.
To remedy the situation, immigration advocates are demanding that policy changes be made and school employees be required to go through specific training to gain a comprehensive understanding of the laws pertaining to immigrant children. North Carolina law currently states that all minors under the age of 21 have a legal right to avail themselves of a public school education.
