Should Kelly Williams-Bolar be in jail?

Kelly Williams Bolar broke the law. She sent her children to a school near her father’s home which was not their zoned school. This happens everyday but rarely is someone sentenced to jail time. Bolar has to serve 10 days in jail and she will be on probation for 2 years. The real crime here is why are some schools in this country sub-standard? Tell me what you think.

    I just don’t get it, was the purpose of this to make an example of her? There are numerous people who have done this and this is the first time to our knowledge that someone got arrested for it. It’s absolutely shameful that the only thing that she’s guilty of is wanting what everyone wants which is to provide the best education for her children. It’s even sadder that most likely the government will end up cutting education budget; as if the education system isn’t under funded enough to begin with.

    This case is emblematic of the millions of parents who are screaming out for the emancipation of their kids from the substandard schools in which they are trapped in primarily urban communities. Why, you ask are some schools substandard? The answer is very simple. It is because of the monopolistic chains that the government has on the public education system; controlled by the National Education Association. Now, this is not an indictment the rank and file members of the NEA or classroom teachers at large. Many of them give little thought to the agenda of the NEA. The president of the NEA publicly stated that he will become concerned about the interest of the students when they become payers of union dues.

    So then, how does the NEA control the government education monopoly? They control it by controlling the purse strings of the political contributions to the Democrat party. The NEA resists competition in any form; be it in classrooms by way of merit pay or by issuance of vouchers even if they are to be redeemed at another nearby community public school. The Democrat politicians dutifully comply with the admonition of the NEA and refuse to permit competition in any form.

    The Black folks in these communities endure the entrapment of their children in these hovels while large percentages of the teacher and administrators in these very schools as well as the political leaders in their community send their children to private schools. They then persuade parents of these kids that the use of vouchers would drain resources from their schools thereby diminishing the quality of their kids education. Go figure.

    She was convicted of a FELONY. That’s the most important part to me. A FELONY!!!

      Yes, she was convicted of a felony because she dared to defy the orthodoxy. As Ms. Kelly- Bolar stated, they were not interested in money for restitution but wanted to make an example of her. Until citizens rise up and take responsibility for the leadership they elect and hold them responsible these problems will never cease

    She should claim to be an illegal alien. There shouldn’t be any problem then.

    We do not have the whole story, no doubt. I can only speculate that the school she had her children in is better than the one they are shackled to because of her Akron address. I am a firm believer that the education money should go with the kid, not the other way around. If the school is substandard than the child should be able to vote with their feet and go where they have the best opportunity to get an education. The Teacher’s Unions don’t want that, because they know (and will tell you) that “all the GOOD students will leave!”.Isn’t it time we expected better results for the money we are “investing” in education?
