Mom Sentenced to Jail for Sending her Kids to a Better School

Seriously? Wow. I understand she falsified records, bad. But the father of the children lived within the good district and they wouldn’t allow the children to attend because mom was the primary caregiver. So?

The district claimed it wasn’t fair to others who pay the taxes for the district and this mom didn’t. But the kids’ father does. Who knows where the childrens’ grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. live?? And for that matter, I pay taxes for schools and I don’t even have children. Perhaps I could sponsor a child from another district?

All I can say is, thank goodness we live in a state that allows for open enrollment. Although I would remind my readers to stay ever vigilant on education news. While we currently enjoy many charter school options and open enrollment in our area, there is nothing that prevents someone from coming along tomorrow from saying it is wrong. If you don’t believe me, just google the words “ban open enrollment”, “ban charter schools”, or even “ban homeschooling” and you will see how many people are unhappy with the way we do things here in Colorado.
