Re: Local School Provides Haven From Juarez Violence

The Lydia Patterson Institute is a privately-funded school, with one-third of funds coming from the Southern Methodist Church and the rest from tuition dollars.

Although perhaps true that Mexican citizens use US public schools, that is not the case in this story.

Private schools can admit whomever they want, regardless of nationality.
Thanks for your interest!
