Decision Date: 1982
Agency: DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Synopsis: The parents of a 14-year-old boy alleged that although they were domiciliaries of the City of Paterson, he was refused admission to school by the Board of Education. The Board justified its action on the ground that the parents and son were illegal residents in the United States and that this status disentitled their son to a free public school admissions. In an order granting interim relief, the administrative law judge determined that the boy would suffer irreparable harm if he were denied admission to school while awaiting adjudication; in addition, had struck down a Texas statute withholding a free public education from illegal aliens. Accordingly, the judge ordered the boy's admission to school pend- ing the outcome of the litigation. James M. Larsen, Esq., for petitioners (Passaic County Legal Aid Society, attorney) Herman W.
