Losing an Undocumented Student

A student came to me recently and said he had to drop out of school because his financial aid didn't come through. He's a really sharp kid. Got the highest score on the first exam.

He said his situation is difficult because he is undocumented. His English is perfect... probably another one of those that would have benefited from the DREAM act.

I told him to keep coming to my class, because he was going to need it eventually and that I would do everything I could to get him an education "off the books".
