WOW- you people talking about "she stole taxpayer dollars"or talking about"my tax dollar"...WTF.? THIS WAS ABOUT doing what she had to for her children. Pretty sure SHE WOULD move up out of where she is IF SHE COULD AND IF IT WERE THAT EASY. NONE of you will GO BROKE over her kids going to "YOUR" school district on your fricken tax dollar. If times were bad for you and you were stuck living in a place with your children having to go to schools THAT SUCKED but saw an opportunity to send your child to a better school by using a fake address would you think about it being illegal and on other taxpayers dollars etc or would you take your chances, hope you dont get caught and get YOUR CHILD THE BEST EDUCATION POSSIBLE? ITS ABOUT THE CHILDREN... you should be ashamed. IF ITS THAT BIG OF A DEAL THEN WHY NOT FIX THE PROBLEM BY FIXING THE "GHETTO-FIED CRACK DEN" SCHOOLS?? WE are ALL STRUGGLING and WE NEED TO HELP OUT ONE ANOTHER AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.Greedy

I live in the school district she sent her kids to, Copley High School on Ridgewood (lol, wood) road. This is not a race thing. This is a legal thing, kids from Akron city schools fake moving in with relatives that live in Copley to go to our schools because theirs are all ghetto-fied crack dens. Thats not racism, check crime rates and school reports for Akron Ohio and you will see what I mean. This woman, and the dozens more like her, falsified records to get her kid sent to my school district on my tax dollar. Many more like her did the same thing. Delan Carter? That semi-famous football guy that went to Syracuse? Same thing. The perpetrators of this particular crime happen to be black, thats not a reason to let them off the hook. Oh yeah, the charge was 2 counts of FELONY tampering with records. Unless it was a felony 'eating fried chicken' it wasn't a race thing. Criminals deserve prison time.

"Bullpoo. drat those people for making them stop the pursuit of better education."

Yea, well what if I went and stole from someones home to finance my college education? It would be stealing right? Same thing. She broke the law and basically stole taxpayer dollars for her own child.

TO BAD SHE KNEW IT WAS ILLEGAL! She has the right to vote and the right to protest, but she doesn't have the right to break the law, just like everyone else!

What a ridiculous thing to send someone to jail for. There are rapists and murderers on the street and this is what our tax money pays for?

The race issue is: you wouldn't be asking that question if she was white.

Okay, here's the thing... Her father lives in the district that she wants to send her kids to school in right? You pay school taxes regardless of whether you have kids or not, so he is actually paying money into that school district and therefore no crime was committed. This is an utter outrage. What I don't agree with is bussing kids from failing schools into better schools because all you are doing is bringing down the average of the better school and doing nothing to improve the quality of the failing school.

For the end goal of anarcho-capitalism to work (a free society responsible for its own actions), it requires a socialist education system. If a schooling system were truly anarcho-capitalist, we would expect children to pay for their own schooling without parental aid, probably through loans. You can imagine the problems that would come from a 5-year old signing for loans.

One cannot make the responsible decisions necessary for anarcho-capitalism to work without being educated to do so. That education needs to be provided to everyone equally, regardless of the wealth of parents. You can only have fair and equal capitalist competition if you start on the same footing.

I'm an anarcho-capitalist myself, but Education, Defense, and some infrastructure (i.e. roads) are absolutely required to be government responsibilities for such a system to work.

Poor lady she just wanted to help her kids. Plus her dad lived in the area so it's not like it was a complete lie.

@Volsunga: I think we are regarding the issue from the perspectives of two different political systems. I think that anarcho-capitalism is the best system. In other words, every person is responsible for himself and you can't really leech off of society. At the worst, you can leech off of your family under such a system.

The voucher system doesn't treat schools as buildings unless the parents do so. Parents would have the option to pick which school to send their children to, and that selection would almost certainly depend on the teachers at the school. I do agree with you that the teachers' union is a bad thing, though. Tenure needs to go and teachers need to be paid based on their abilities, not based on the number of degrees they have or on the bs standards of the union.

@green_batman
How is it a problem that people without children pay into the education system? As individuals, they receive the same amount of societal benefit from an educated populace as a parent does. In the economic sense of the matter, the parent-child relationship is utterly irrelevant.
As a rule, I agree with you on not taking responsibility for the choices of others. Education is the exception. One cannot be allowed to be a leech on society due to ignorance.
The voucher system is utterly flawed because it acts as if schools are nothing but the buildings they occupy. What matters is the teachers, and what causes bad teachers is mostly unions.

And, before you question what my dad taught me, I have since done independent research and found what he taught true, while me teachers taught me some very slanted things.

I do realize that this may not always be possible for the poor. I still think that it is possible, that it simply requires motivation, but that many poor lack the motivation. While I do not generally think it is right to try to take responsibility for the choices of others, I think that the voucher system is a lesser evil that is acceptable, if not ideal. It still does not eliminate the problem of requiring those who do not have children to pay into the education system, or for that matter, the inequality among those with differing numbers of children, but it is better than the current system.
