Black Ohio Mom Jailed for Sending Kids to Better School District

During the state of the union, Obama stressed about more schools, better education, and the need for more teachers. Ironically, there is a report of a black mom in Ohio, 12 credits shy to be a teacher, got in trouble with the law because she wanted the best school and education for her daughters. The end result led her to a 10-day prison sentence and ruining her chances to become a teacher. Also, the courts are mandating that her kids return back to the failed school district

What she did was technically wrong, but since we have a government stealing our hard earned money, dictating what we can and cannot do, and failing to fix the education system, there is very little option for the America public. It is hypocritical that a failed school district must punish those who doesn't want to be part of that failed school system. I must commend the mother who wanted only the best for her children. The government will not do it. We must do what is right for the family. If the school system fails, it must be closed down and move these students to a better school system that has the resources to give them a chance. The school education system is not a daycare allowing the parent to go to work. It is a system that provides a future for our children to survive in society.

(ABC NEWS) An Ohio mother's attempt to provide her daughters with a better education has landed her behind bars.

Kelley Williams-Bolar was convicted of lying about her residency to get her daughters into a better school district.

Williams-Bolar decided four years ago to send her daughters to a highly ranked school in neighboring Copley-Fairlawn School District.

But it wasn't her Akron district of residence, so her children were ineligible to attend school there, even though her father lived within the district's boundaries.

The school district accused Williams-Bolar of lying about her address, falsifying records and, when confronted, having her father file false court papers to get around the system.

Williams-Bolar said she did it to keep her children safe and that she lived part-time with her dad.

While her children are no longer attending schools in the Copley-Fairlawn District, school officials said she was cheating because her daughters received a quality education without paying taxes to fund it.

Williams-Bolar refused and was indicted and convicted of falsifying her residency records.

She was sentenced last week to 10 days in county jail and put on three years of probation.
