Homeless Mother Charged 16,000 For giving Wrong Address
There has got to be more to this story! If there is, I don't know what it is. Read this:
Homeless Mom Charged With Stealing $16,000 in Education Expenses By Lying About Son's Address for School
I just don't get it. Basically, the school required she provide an address when registering her son for school. First off, I'm happy (especially in her situation) that she's getting him to school. She doesn't have a regular address, so she gave the babysitters address. The problem with that? The school was out of her district. Whoopee doo!! Oh my gosh, lets fine this homeless woman $16,000!! - Why are people so crazy? In the article, it says perhaps the school is just trying to set an example. But really. This would be stressful for anyone. The school officials sound kind of heartless.
As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might.
