    Ohio Mom Kelley Williams-Bolar Jailed for Sending Kids to Better School District - ABC News

    Check out the title of the article: Ohio Mom Kelley Williams-Bolar Jailed for Sending Kids to Better School District

    Um. No. She was not jailed for wanting a better education for her kids. She was jailed for stealing $30,000 from the taxpayers of that school.

    What good parents do is MOVE. Or if they can't move, they PAY TUITION.

    They are going to make this woman the poster child for school choice. Until that's the law of the land, people are just going to have to follow the fucking rules.

    As for her trying to send her kids to a school in a higher tax bracket, just goes to show that the poor will always be stupid for their school districts can't provide... Now whethers thats a parents choice to stay poor or luck of the draw will always be debatable.

    As for her being singled out, at one point they do mention 100s of other families under investigation. Did anybody else face criminal charges or did she initially try and fight it by using she lived part time with her dad?

    This happens ALL the time, using an aunt or grandma's address as place of residence so they can attend that school instead of the one in their district.


    Sometimes the social workers will make house calls to see if the child is really living there, but other times they don't have the time or resources to do that.
