Staff attorney Sarah Morgan‘s letter to the editor of the Baltimore Sun appeared today, a follow-up to an article earlier this week about Baltimore Co. schools requiring proof of residency before students can be enrolled for the new school year. “Prudence alone suggests that school system should undertake an investigation of residency and allow the child to remain in school in the interim,” Morgan wrote. “That way, the county would avoid removing children from school who may actually live in the county and have the right to attend county schools. Baltimore County’s new policy is also troubling because of its apparent disregard for basic due process rights.” Read the entire letter here
