Tanya McDowell Case: NAACP Appoints Lawyer for Connecticut Woman Arrested for Illegally Enrolling Son in School - ABC News
Tanya McDowell, 33, was arrested April 15 and charged with first degree grand larceny for allegedly stealing $15,686 in educational services from Norwalk Public Schools. Her 6-year-old son was enrolled in Brookside Elementary School in Norwalk, Conn., from September of last year until January of this year.
All I can say is WOW!!! I personally believe that every child deserves the best education and it is sad that certain School Districts have better schools. If every School provided the same quality education , this wouldn't happen. I don't understand how we are forced to send our kids to schools that are in our neighborhoods and most of the time the quality is not great. This is the Right of every child to have a good education and it should not be a Privilege. I can understand why she did what they are accusing her of doing? She wanted something better for her son.
The Irony is that every day the Rate of Children who are in abusive households rises, the Number of Neglected children increases and here we have a mother who wanted something better for her child and now she is going to be arrested. While Lindsey Lohan makes the legal System look like a Mockery. It is sad to see that the values of our society are all twisted and the people who should be getting a break aren't and the ones who need a reality check just get a pat on the back . This is not just a prosecution of the mother , but also of the Child, he deserved a good school and an education , what difference does it make in what district he was enrolled. Or is the School district upset because that money was spent on this particular African American child? Is that the main reason why they are all upset?
But wait there is more, and this is what leaves me speechless according to another ABC Report,
Convicted rapist Kenneth Pike, of Auburn, N.Y., is expected to undergo a life-saving heart transplant that could cost up to $800,000 -- a price that will be paid courtesy of New York state taxpayers.
But this mother is being harrased and fined and many other children out there are being robbed of a good education while a convicted Rapist has the right to receive a Tax payer funded Life saving Transplant.
" WHERE IS THE JUSTICE IN THIS?? "
