Plyler V. Doe
Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S. 202 (1982), was a case in which the Supreme Court of the United States struck down both a state statute denying funding for education to illegal alien children and a municipal school district's attempt to charge illegal aliens an annual $1,000 tuition fee for each illegal alien student to compensate for the lost state funding.[1] The Court found that any state restriction imposed on the rights afforded to children based on their status as illegal aliens must be examined under an intermediate scrutiny standard to determine whether it furthers a "substantial" government interest. The application of Plyler v. Doe
