Making an “example” of whom?

February 2, 2011

Responding to the case of the Ohio mother who was convicted of a felony for illegally enrolling her children in a better district, Ohio community advocate and reader Kennedy Kent wrote with a follow-up to her earlier concerns about the misuse of funds under the tutoring provisions of NCLB.

Check out Attorney Bob Fitrakis’ follow-up article in the Free Press on this NCLB Scam.

Will Ohio’s Auditor Uncover the No Child Left Behind Scam? (Includes video & documentation. –SSS)

As you know, they charged Williams-Bolar and her father with defrauding school services and tampering with records; yet, school officials in the largest district in Ohio are ignoring millions of dollars being defrauded and ignoring the SES Director stating on video she caught one vendor, in particular, blatantly defrauding the SES program. A vendor, who before they were caught, had already been paid over $90,000.

Ohio officials are quick to give Williams-Bolar what they call her “just due” while ignoring these SES vendors blatantly stealing millions of our taxpayer dollars with fake tutoring companies.

White collar crime is so much easier to get away with if you steal millions.

I agree. It’s interesting who’s chosen when the authorities decide to “make an example of someone.” Given the evidence of huge payments to companies who haven’t shown that their small operations warrant such payouts– or that they’re actually rendering the services for which they’re being paid– we can only hope that there’s a larger investigation of this soon, and that real felonious behavior is soon met with felony charges.

Hope, and start a petition, perhaps?

    How true yet so disturbing. I’m tired of government officials going after the little people like a single mother just trying to get an education for her children. The only reason Ms. Bolar had to do what she did is because our so-called Boards and top management in urban schools are co-conspirators with private companies to steal our systems blind.

    Education fraud is as big as medicare fraud and it’s time the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education realize this and quit giving our money to white collar thugs. Race to the top is just another example of good money going to bad.

    it is very disturbing. poor woman was working to become a teacher herself, and that dream is ruined.
    white chalk is outta control–maybe letters to the gov. will help.
