Oh boy. Illegal-immigrant haters are going to love this one.
The UCLA Center for Labor Research along with the National Labor College have established a virtual school just for undocumented migrants — the National Dream University.
It's for those who live under the radar of official legitimacy: It will allow so-called Dream Act students (undocumenteds who pay in-state tuition and are eligible for financial aid) to take classes online:
Well, actually, Golden State Dream Actors are don't need as much help as folks from non-Dream Act states, where there's no in-state tuition.
The first class at National Dream University will strike a balance between out-of-state aspirants and those from California, says Kent Wong, director of UCLA's Labor College.
To that end, classes will only cost $65 a unit. And some students will be taught by undocumented master's graduates and Ph.D. candidates, Wong said.
