Editorial Reviews

Review

“Michael Olivas is a passionate storyteller who knows the saga of Plyler v. Doe first-hand and skillfully recounts an important chapter in the history of immigration law and the Constitution.”
-Peter Schuck,co-editor of Understanding America: The Anatomy of an Exceptional Nation

"Prominent legal scholar Michael Olivas provides...informed and insightful commentary on the complex nature of immigration, education, and the collision of these two highly charged issues."-The Review of Higher Education

"University of Houston law professor Michael A. Oliva's brief book on the 1982 Supreme Court case decision, Plyer v. Doe, which ruled a Texas provision that allowed school districts to charge tuition to undocumented schoolchildren was unconstitutional, is a fascinating legal analysis of the effect of the decision and how it has withstood legal challenges in the thirty years since the high court handed down the decision." -Jon Reyhner,Southwestern Historical Quarterly

"No Undocumented Child Left Behind is without doubt a valuable book. The book makes an important stride... a well-written, crisp narrative about a past Supreme Court case that remains in effect in the present."-Luis F.B. Plascencia,Latino Studies

"Olivas makes a technical legal argument with an appeal to both compassion and common sense."-Zocalo Public Square

"Provocative and wise, Michael Olivas’s important book challenges all of us to carefully consider how our nation’s core values are reflected both in the way we educate immigrant children and treat noncitizens in our midst. Authored by one of the nation’s foremost experts on immigrant education, this definitive study will be the starting point for any informed inquiry into contemporary debates on education and immigration. It will, as well, provide many an insight into the complicated politics that surround immigration policy in our federalist system.”
-Victor C. Romero,author of Alienated: Immigrant Rights, the Constitution, and Equality in America

"Highly readable, relevant, and well documented."-Nancy Almand,Social Sciences

"Olivas presents an overview of the political, educational and legislative context of the Plyercase in a clear and concise manner, and starts each chapter with a short story or testimony to engage and connect with readers, while remaining rigorous, focused on the topic and well-documented."-Language Policy

"Highly readable, relevant, and well documented."-Library Journal
