Adolescence is hard enough under the best of circumstances. Peer pressure, family conflicts, acne – these and other stimuli make high school graduation a joy for most of us.
But for undocumented students, the final two years of high school can be especially bittersweet. Although the U.S. Supreme Court guarantees access to K-12 public education for all children, regardless of immigration status, education and work prospects for undocumented youth after high school are very often limited. Even getting a driver’s license is out of the question. http://afsc.org/story/reflections-papers-stories-undocumented-youth
