The Akron Ohio Mother: A Mother's love sends her to jail

Hey gang, I'm back and welcome once again to THE RICH SPOT. I wanted to talk about this woman who has been sent to jail for using her father's address to send her kids to a better school. Kelley Williams-Bolar, (Pictured below), was convicted of faking her address to get her children into a better school. She's serving a ten day sentance after refusing to pay $31,000. School mum

Now, let me start off by saying this is ridiculous. For years people...wait let me rephrase that, white people because blacks were not allowed into public school systems due to Jim Crow laws, have been using the education system to their advantage. By the rights of the Constitution, we are allowed to have Freedom of Education. But as history will show, African Americans were not allowed to learn, read, nor write. While this may not be a distinct use of racism, this incident certainly has racist overtones.

Second, this mother is not the first nor last person to do this. Many parents have done something similar to this in order to give their children a better education. It's nothing new, so why is it such a big deal when Ms. Bolar does it? There have been high school athletes that have dual residency; yet, their parents will not get sent off to jail. At most, they'll be disqualified.

In this point, Freedom of Education, as I briefly refrenced, is not an American, Canadian, European or any ian right. It is a human right, as that has been stated by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948: Article 26 which states: "Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children." So all in all, Ms. Bolar was using her human rights to give them a better education, from there a better life.

To send this woman to jail, makes about much sense as seeing Steven Segal with an Oscar. There is no reason that this lady should have to go to jail for wanting her kids to have decency. However, I may be wrong, as Ms. Bolar states herself: " I did this for them". Yes she did, for what greater love is in the world than a parent's love for their child? A Mother's Love sent her to jail.

Peace Fam.
