Non-Citizens to Vote in SF

From the San Jose Mercury News (registration):

In a push to get more immigrants involved in their children's education, San Francisco officials are considering asking voters in November to give parents who are not U.S. citizens the right to vote in school board elections.

Under the proposed ballot initiative, even illegal immigrants would be able to vote, so long as they are parents with kids in public schools.

What non-citizen parents need is incentives and encouragement to become citizens and integrate more fully into society as a whole.
