“Ohio – An Ohio mother of two was sentenced to 10 days in jail and placed on three years probation after sending her kids to a school district in which they did not live. Kelly Williams-Bolar was sentenced by Judge Patricia Cosgrove on Tuesday and will begin serving her sentence immediately.
The jury deliberated for seven hours and the courtroom was packed as the sentence was handed down. She was convicted on two counts of tampering with court records after registering her two girls as living with Williams Bolar’s father when they actually lived with her. The family lived in the housing projects in Akron, Ohio, and the father’s address was in nearby Copley Township”


Any parent would empathize with this mother who just wants a decent education for her children. The intensive stress caused by the unusually high crime rate in her home district, along with her concern for the safety of her children, drove her this decision. Why the white school district would hire a private investigator to stalk her and video tape her living outside the “district” is despicable! Where is Obama on this debacle? Is he going to handle this one just like he handled his relatives here in the US or Africa?
Sad times we are in.

How Is it a "white" school district? Are minorities not allowed in? Obviously It's stupid that she was jailed for this but to automatically assume it's because she is not white is really stretching It, and to refer to it as a "white" school district is also rather stupid.

She broke a law by sending her kids to the wrong school. I don't know why the article feels the need to use "BLACK" and "WHITE". You have to attend the school in your district. It's a common sense law for bus routes, class sizes, etc. It's not a race based in any way.

Stupid?
Really?

If you would have read the link, or even put some thought into the thread, you would realize that this just reeks of prejudice and discrimination.
Where is Jessie Jackson?

Why does'nt the father of these kids swap houses with her? Sounds like he paid little in child support yet could afford a much better neighborhood? The father should go to jail, not the mother!!!

And how exactly is this racist? Much like police and fire departments, schools are districted for a reason and race has nothing to do with it. Funds are appropriated based on family and housing sizes within the district. This keeps the number of students in the schools down to what the schools can handle. If parents were allowed to put their kids in whatever district they wanted of course the better schools will be overflowing with more kids than they can accommodate. Regardless of how the case was handled or investigated, placing your children into a school district in which you do not live is against the law.

Now do I agree with 10 days in jail? Hell no. But she should be fined or punished for certain. Suck it up or improve yourself and move to a better district.

Why would Obama get involved in this? Because he is half black? He has no business sticking his nose in this matter. If this mother was truly concerned for her daughters welfare she should have handed custody off to the father who legally would have been able to enroll the children in the school. Bottom line is she could have done this the legal way, instead she chose to try and game the system and it came back and bit her. Why should anyone care?

The title is loaded, however there shouldnt be restrictions on where to send children to begin with. However that would also offer schools the chance to turn down children, so it opens a new set of problems.

Ah, not the racist thing again.My god,I'm so tired of hearing it.I'd rather not believe this.Think most people have moved on past racial issues or are busy hating muslims.Black people don't even come up on the radar of bigots anymore.

I won't argue that she broke the law. But why she felt that she had to avoid sending her children to a predominantly white district away from a crime ridden school district is the real story here.

She wasn't jailed either, she's been placed on probation.

There was also a charge of grand theft but was dropped.

It's sad the race card is being played here...

Its fraud to say the kids live with their dad. Also consider hows this is screws with the census or what government programs they may be entitled to.

I did read the link. If any other person, white or otherwise lied about were there children live they would have also been brought up on charges. trust me when it comes to making money and filling jails the system cares not what the color of your skin is. also Jesse Jackson is too busy being a bigot.

Why should the POTUS get involved (shakes head in wonder)?
Do his words,"leave no child left behind" ring a bell?
Your prejudice is showing.

No they weren't being left behind, the mother just didn't like the school they could have been legally attending. They had the opportunity to receive an education. This isn't about anyone being left behind. I think you better go re read the site motto on denying ignorance because yours is gleaming.

Sorry but your prejudice is showing more than the other poster. Why would the POTUS get involved in a small criminal matter that has nothing to do with him? Do you think he is just sitting around his desk waiting for the batphone to light up so he can go save the day?
I would assume he is too busy trying to run one of the most challenging countries in the world would he not.

prejudice? i read this article yesterday, it has nothing to do with race, the article quickly tried to put a spin on it simply to outrage people. obviously there's an ulterior motive, probably trying to run for office or something. i don't agree with her being jailed, or with her father being charged with a felony, but the fact is the duped the school district out of $30,000.00 in two years. if you conned some one out of, or stole that much, you'd be looking at serious jail time. she did it, she new it was wrong when she did it. it's plain and simple. nothing to do with race, but, you can scream it from the mountain top all ya want.. it doesn't change the fact she did it
