I think at least from the past comments this issue is being oversimplified. The fact they speak Arabic is a red herring, completely irrelevant to the real issue. Somebody was compensating for a slow news day.

The real issue is the fact that Mason Schools are paying ~$600,000 of Cincinnati Children's bills. The children need an education, and some district has to do it, but the program is 100% run through Cincinnati Children's and they should be the ones responsible for coordinating the education of these kids. Not Mason.


A program is already coordinated with the City of Cincinnati and the children should be assigned to there only as their public district. If the parents want to pay for private schooling, so be it. If quality is inferior, all parties need to come to the table and figure out a solution to make that school work, not just run away and get a free ride somewhere else.
Mason is an open school district.

That's the jist of the article. Because these children are not legal residents with the correct visas it is difficult to "charge" anyone for their education. While these families are receiving amazing medical care for their ill child via CCH there are other issues that need to be addressed.

Regarding the question of Open Enrollment:

The Mason City Schools Board of Education permits any student from any other district in the state to apply and enroll in the districts schools free of any tuition obligation, provided that all procedures as outlined in the administrative regulations are met.

That sure needs to be examined quickly.

What ever grant Children's Hosp has to give treatment should also cover education expenses.

Why are our tax dollars being used?

If these families have children at Children's and have other children attending school, it would be assumed that they are in the area for a fairly long time period. Where are these families living during this time? Are they renting apartments or houses or are they living in hotels?

I don't think they've said where they live, I assume Mason if they're going to the schools. There's a lot of lower priced apartments in the area that house Indians, so I assume that's where the Muslims live.


The main problem is how disruptive they are to the classroom. Many are there for a few weeks and then simply disappear causing teachers to be distracted. Some parents are concerned terrorists can enter the school buildings and the guise of being a parent of a student, and then shoot the place up like what happened in California.

If you would have read the 1st post, you might have found your answer:

There's more Arabic at Mason schools. Here's why.

As to the question about tax money, if the families are renting apartments or houses, the property owner is paying taxes which is usually passed along being built into the rent. If the family is living outside the district and is open enrolled, the state portion of the school funding follows them to the district they attend. Since the district can only ask for an address and not citizenship status, they cannot "expect" that anything other than that will occur.

If the children are not legally allowed to enroll in school, that determination will need to be made by someone other than the schools (or participants in an online forum).
