In the “freest” country in the world you go to jail for five years if you send your kid to a “wrong” school. What is a wrong school? One that is not in your district has better teachers and a higher succes rate than the schools in your district.
So if you are a black homeless mother and therefore have a black homeless child you’re doomed to put him in a school that befits a black homeless child. And if you are a black homeless female and you put your child in a school a little bit further away to try to make sure your son doesn’t end up homeless, addicted or otherwise engaged in what black people perceived to do because black people are lazy, criminal you should be in jail.
Think this is a joke? Not for this poor woman and yes this is America.
