The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Mom lies on paperwork to get her kids a better education, then goes to jail...

    http://news.yahoo.com/video/us-15749...chool-23973624

    This is FUBAR.

    Here's a solution for the next time it happens, tell the mom she's been a naughty girl and switch the kids back to proper schools and watch them become hood rats who end up joining gangs and kill your first born son in a drive by shooting over a pair sneakers....

    And people ask me why I refuse to move back to the states...wtf...

    The judge did do one good thing, she's only got to do 10 days in jail she also wrote the broad of education and told them this felony shouldn't be reason to deny her a teacher license since she is a good single mother merely attempting to get her kids the best education possible...

    It's still a WTF.

    Me thinks the biggest issue the school system has is that she refuses to pay the $30,000.00 in back tuition payments...

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Chubrock- agreed and agreed.

    The problem here does seem to be the back tuition she refuses to pay, not the wrong address.

    An even bigger problem I see is the ineptness of the American public education system and how it, along with lousy lazy parents have failed their kids. Teachers can only do so much, the issue begins at home. This lady did a valiant act, but should have checked her facts before embarking, then again it speaks to a bigger issue being the educational system that she needed to go to such lengths to get her children a better education.

    With a mom like that I don't think these kids have much of a chance of becoming hood rats/thugs just because they go to a different school.

    That happened about 20 min from my house actually lol.

    The punishment seems extreme or maybe just a tad over the top, but that sorta stuff is taken quite seriously around here. Fraud is fraud and you can't pretend you live somewhere else just because you don't like the school you teach at.

    What she could have looked into legally was open enrollment. It takes a bit more time and can be complicated but there are legal ways for people to enroll their kids in a public school outside the district they live in.

    A felony for this seems extreme. There is some fault here by the mother, and 10 days in jail is not the end of the world for her or her family. To me this points to another example of the broken educational system.

    Also since when does it cost $30,000 to send your kids to public school?

    Not unheard of...I've heard of $24,000 before.

    well nik, this isnt communist russia. things cost money, including public schools. they are funded mostly by taxes. if you live outside the municipality/district where your children attend school, you are not paying the taxes that most directly fund that school. as a result, you pay tuition for attendance. very simple

    My wife went to Revere, one street away from the copley school district and she thanks god for it, that school was terrible when she was younger. We know a few teachers from Copley high school so this is a pretty interesting story for us?


    I NEVER thought I would see the day where people were lying to get into COPLEY!!!!! Revere...sure but not Copley, they don't have very good
    academic records to speak of?

    I get it but the point is there is a right way and a wrong way to do things. The article in the beacon the other day said that 29 parents were busted from Copley in the last couple years but they ALL payed the back tuition and all that came with it so no charges were filed.

    I wouln't worry too much, the current admimistration will re-distribute money from these "better" schools with higher taxable residents and share it with the schools that don't seem to have the money soon enough, to help "even" the playing field. We won't be bringing the poorer schools up near as much as bring the better schools down!

    It will all suck soon enough!

    Private education will be the only way to get quality in this country in about 10 more years!
