Education As Felony

Abby Zimet


Incredible story out of Ohio, where single mom Kelley Williams-Bolar was jailed and slapped with a felony conviction for
lying to school officials to get her kids into the better school in
their father's school district. The kicker: With a record, she will lose
her job and her chance at the teaching certificate she's about to earn.
The case is being appealed. A petition from and here.


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
