Doing Time for the Sake of Education?
What has the state of public education in certain parts of Ohio come to when a single mother living in the projects is willing to risk jail
time in order to assure that her daughters do not become lost statistics in a failing school? Needless to say, this woman ought to be on the top of John Kasich's list for pardons but, more important, the newly energized Ohio GOP needs to use this case as exhibit A in the opening arguments of what ought to be an epic (and public) fight with Democrats and the teacher unions over school choice and other issues. When parents are motivated to this level of civil disobedience, even the most cowardly of politicians ought to feel emboldened to act on behalf of the right.
