Is She the New Rosa Parks?

I'm back. It has been over three months but I'm returning to blog bout everything. I just wanted to comment on the case of Kelley Williams-Bolar. The Ohio woman had been jailed because she lied to school officials bout the residency of her two daughters. She had been given 10 days more importantly felony conviction. Now, she cannot become licensed to teacher for special need children. Valerie Strauss of the Washington Post doubts that she is the modern day Mrs Parks. I believe her sentence was too harsh. She should not be denied to be teaching. Her case is the textbook example for school choice. if the money would follow her children instead of the schools, this situation could have been avoided. She is no Mrs. Parks, she could have moved her kids to her father's residence or applied to other schools in neighboring districts, but her problem demonstrates the growing problems in our educational system.
