THE INTERSECTION | MADNESS & REALITY: Jailed Akron Mom, Kelly Williams-Bolar Exclusive Interview From Jail [VIDEO]
Yesterday, I read an article about Kelly Williams-Bolar who is spending time in jail (ten days) because she sent her daughters to a school in the suburbs instead of the inner city. All she did was say that her children lived with their father instead of with her in the projects. To make it worse, they are going to make her pay the suburban school district more than $30K back to the school district to make up for educating her children for 2 years. They look at it like she stole money from them. That really sucks, in my opinion. It's like they are saying that children can't be considered as belonging to the same household as their father as well as their mother. In California, if parents have joint-custody, some liberties are taken and their situation is taking into account. In this woman's case, I don't know how involved in the children's lives the father is involved but I think that the punishment is unwarranted and the attitude is racist. Beyond question, the school they children were supposed to go to is horrible. Why shouldn't they have a better opportunity because their father lives outside the community. And how is educating a child stealing from any community? Oh yeah, that's right the children are black and poor. Can't have that.
