The Texas Observer has published a wonderful article about Plyler ("A Lesson in Equal Protection: the Texas cases that opened the schoolhouse door to undocumented immigrant children," byline Barbara Belejack). People forget so soon, and the Supreme Court ruling was in 1982, so short a time ago. It's too bad that one of the photographs accompanying this article, of Plyler himself, doesn't appear on line, but all the text does. The article also points to the Oyez site, which seems to be unknown to many people. I look forward to checking out the sound files one of these days, on a faster connection.
