    This is bull. So many folks do this here where I live it ain't funny. When they built this one new high school, they know many of those kids did not live in the district. How in da hell is you and your 3 cousins all going to have the same address all of a sudden.

    Peace!

    The funny part about it is, the very people reporting this story are the ones who oppose school choice and voucher programs that would have allowed this mother to send her son to a better school. But I digress

    Kemetstry,

    The manner in which you report this incident is somewhat disingenuous; there are other complicated issues involving drugs, but thanks anyway:)


    Mother Given 5 Yrs Prison for Sending Child to School Outside Her District



    [​IMG]

    McDowell was sentenced under the Alford Doctrine, which says that she does not admit guilt, but instead concedes that the state has enough evidence for a conviction.

    The state has accused McDowell of stealing $15,686 worth of education from the city of Norwalk. She was also convicted of four counts of selling narcotics, which added to her sentence. She pleaded guilty to dealing drugs on February 7.

    The total sentence was for 12 years in prison, suspended after she serves five years and another five years probation.

    Vouchers have a history of not measuring up to the levels of the better(white) schools
