    "To whom much has been given, much is expected." Great quote. The gift of education is opportunity. Opportunity is something you reach for, work for, and when you've reached it, expand it, make it grow, and share it. This is how America works. Many arrive with nothing; some are born with everything. All have the same responsibility to make the best of their education and become the best of themselves.

    Anything short of deportation is against the law! Like the doorknobs trying to get reduced tuition for illegal invaders, if they submit paperwork in attempt to do it THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED
