Kelly Williams-Bolar: Sent to Jail for Sending Kids to Wrong School District

 

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse UniversityScholarship in Action 

An Ohio mother of two was sentenced to 10 days in jail and placed on three years probation after sending her kids to a school district in which they did not live.  Kelly Williams-Bolar was sentenced by Judge Patricia Cosgrove on Tuesday and will begin serving her sentence immediately.

The jury deliberated for seven hours and the courtroom was packed as the sentence was handed down.  She was convicted on two counts of tampering with court records after registering her two girls as living with their father when they actually lived with her.  The family lived in the housing projects in Akron, Ohio, and the father’s address was in nearby Copley Township.

Additionally, Williams-Bolar’s father, Edward L. Williams, was charged with a fourth-degree felony of grand theft, in which he and his daughter are charged with defrauding the school system for two years of educational services for their girls.  The court determined that sending their children to the wrong school was worth $30,500 in tuition.

  3. This just prove's that there are certain people in this country who never want to see those less fortuate move up out of their situation,and other word's this is a damn shame and I feel that for some reason RACE played a major part in the jury's decision...

  5. Wow... I am speechless as a mother you want your children to have the best so why not put them in a better school ...I feel if anyone failed these babies it was the court system... And I too believe that race was a major factor in the decision Good luck to you and your children and God bless you...

  6. That is really outrageous,only because the mother is wanting better for her children. If the cost of what they determined the tuition was $30,500. what would the cost have been for their local school, $500.00 for the same time period? That only shows the lack of funds and concerned for black children. Everything is always negitive reporting in the black community, but this should not be, this mother wanted the best for her children. They can, I am sure check that entire school and I am sure if they were truthful, they would find a lot of children with the wrong address, and they will not, only find black.

  7. May GOD continue to bless you and your family Dr. Watkins. And no matter what the living dead negatives' blog about here to you. I Wish to Thank You for keeping the conscience people alive and aware of what time it really is.
    This cruel and unusual punishment...is the aggression of the plight in THEE "Silent Weapons for a Quiet War". Here is a partial
    DESCRIPTIVE INTRODUCTION OF THE SILENT WEAPON/QUIET WAR
    Everything that is expected from an ordinary weapon is expected from a silent weapon by its creators, but only in its own manner of functioning.It shoots situations, instead of bullets; propelled by data processing, instead of chemical reaction (explosion); originating from bits of data, instead of grains of gunpowder; from a computer, instead of a gun; operated by a computer programmer, instead of marksman; under the orders of a banking magnate, instead of a military general.
    It makes no obvious explosive noises, causes no obvious physical or mental injuries, and does not obviously interfere with anyone's daily social life. Yet it makes an unmistakable 'noise', causes unmistakable physical and mental damage, and unmistakably interferes with daily social life, i.e., unmistakable to a trained observer, one who knows what to look for. The public cannot comprehend this weapon, and therefore cannot believe that they are being attacked and subdued by a weapon...............end of quote.
    This is an exert i stummbled upon while researching the secret societies, i.e., The Bilderbergs, Freemason's, Skull and Bones, The Knights Templar, The Knights of the KLU Klux, the Cornbread Mafia, CIA-Cointelpro etc, etc, etc.

    With That Shared...there is a Crucial need for a foundation to be funded to build "Our" own communities and Schools back UP!!! Particularily from the brothers that make it rain in a night club whom are just one bad decision away from modern day slavery.
    I'm Especially outraged because the Kelly Williams-Bolar situation is my current reality. The TIME TO ACT is NOW!!! GOD BLESS

  8. They do that in Upper Darby School District in Pennsylvania. Its one of the better school districts and people try to get their children in there using addresses of people living in the district. All races who are caught doing that get fired, etc. We need to have better schools for all children.

  12. This is a sad situation. The kids loose and the whole family loses. Let's WAKE UP and SUPPORT vouchers to allow our kids to go to whatever school they want to go to. The teachers unions DON'T want us to have a CHOICE in education--because some schools would have to CLOSE DOWN when parents refused to send the kids to those bad schools.
    Amen.

  13. I can understand why this mother did this. Obviously the school in her district is a bastion of failure, bad parented and disrespectful children , burned out teachers and a dangerous place for her children otherwise she would have sent them to her district school. This is a wake up call for parents to particpate and make their presence known in the schools that are in their districts only through strong parental presence will schools get better. Where are the black organizations i.e. NAACP, black fraternities and sorities, urban league, etc. This is where the need is the greatest they need to bombard the school board meetings, volunteer time and do whatever. THIS IS A CRISIS situation. We are losing our children in the school system as early as the third grade. We need to get into action. They are making laws against everything with the goal of crimilization of actions that ten years ago were not.

  14. I don't think that the money was the issue in giving this woman time and openly vowing to destroy her chances of being a teacher. If money where the case it would have stopped at the fine. It is because what she did actually worked and "they" know how well it worked. You see those children now know what education is and have been in it long enough to, where ever they go, they will excel. If placed back in the regular pubilc school system they will be in the mentally gifted support or "star" classes. She broke the code and they know that in just that amount of time frame have change the mentally ability, the educational drive, imprinted goals, of children that without which might have never known these things existed. They are probably saying "How dare she give what we have built only for "our" children to separate them from the lower masses". And to put a more heavier thought on this she is able to take these skills back to the masses where she lives and potentially destroy the dividing line. That is what the jail time is for. What they don't know is that any school with some intellegence would hire this mother whose children know what real structured, progressive education, looks like, and how her children were probably exceling in this system. She knows it because she help her children with the classwork, homework, activities, projects, exams, etc. This then destroys the ability of the elite system to say that they are elite as a more isolated system that the "common masses" cannot excel through. That's why they had to stop any ability of the mother to enter the regular educational system. She could and probably would teach her "own" a thing or two. But this is not only an Al Sharpton situation but a great opportunity for this woman to help a charter school to rise to the top, or if it be Gods will, open up her own school because she has seen what it takes to get what the elite have.This is why she is being dragged through. But no one who has seen the secrets of the elite that is not in that elite world has been forgiven but this job had and has to be done. She does not know it now but she is a true pioneer like those before her who at first had the nerve to teach there people how to read, build schools, universities, and more importantly set there own people free.

  15. I send the mayor of akron,Ohio a letter concerning she should have not been sentence or given probation. I would have did it also and dont would have thought of it an felony. We just want the best education for our children.I am a single mother and are outrageous with this artical on a black mother trying to better her children education. I am a vert upset mother hearing this.The could have talk to her about this and gave her a verbal warning. Some of us dont know that this is a felony letting our children go to district school. We just like the enviornment and think our children will learn more and get a better education to prepare them for college.

  18. I AM BLACK AND DO FEEL A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH RACISM, ON THE OTHER HAND THE FATHER AND THE MOTHER OF THESE CHILDREN ARE JUST AS GUILTY. I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS,BOTH WITH BACHELOR DEGREES - IF THE SITUATION WAS THE SAME -(WHILE MY CHILDREN WERE GROWING UP) PARENTS SEPERATED - YOU CAN BET YOUR LAST MONEY MY CHILDREN WOULD BE STAYING WITH ME IF THEY HAD TO IN ORDER TO RECIEVE A GOOD EDUCATION. MY WIFE AND I WOULD HAVE HAD TO WORK SOMETHING OUT FOR THE BETTERMENT OF OUR CHILDREN. I'M QUITE SURE MS. WILLIAMS-BOLAR'S HEART WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE- YOUR MIND ALSO HAS TO BE THERE. BREAKING THE LAW DOES NOT PROVIDE A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR YOUR CHILDREN TO FOLLOW. MY HEART IS WITH MS. WILLIAMS-BOLAR BUT MY MIND IS NOT. I WOULD HAVE FIGURED SOMETHING OUT WITHOUT PERJURING MY WIFE OR HER DAD. MAY GOD BLESS ALL

  19. Of course all you black people are going to say the only reason she got in trouble for it was because she was black..always pulling the race card you bunch are.The school investigated 100 families..NOT JUST HER.Do you think all 100 of the families investigated were black??Shes just the one that was stupid enough to bring it to court.If a white woman frauded a prestigious black school out of tens of thousands of dollars i doubt any of you who believe she was targeted because she was black would be half as sympathetic.She broke the law and received punishment.What happened to her is fair if she was white and received the same punishment it would still be fair.I hate it when people pull the race card.So many blacks go on and on about how shit is so unfair within the community..seriously?!where i live it is easier for a black or mexican to get on welfare or public assistance than it is a white person..is that fair??no.Theres a black history month but no white history month,is that fair?no.i know tons about black heritage and i have never met a black person who knows as much about my heritage as i do theirs.Once at 4th of July fireworks i heard a black teenager exclaim "IF IT WASNT FOR THIS DAY WED STILL BE SLAVES!"Why the hell should blacks get a month when 90% of them dont know about their heritage?And another thing if white people had a prominent equivalent to the naacp,there would be a HUGE uproar about it,saying that its bigotry and whatnot.Im so f**king tired of black people acting like everyone owes them something,when they get EVERYTHING.So many today still bring up the slave issue well let me tell you something..the PORTUGESE started the African slave trade,and the Africans sold their own family members into slavery ok..but i doubt any blacks know about indentured servitude which was mainly for whites..read the book "the redneck manifesto" theres documentation where black slaves said they would rather be slaves than indentured servants because servants were expendable and treated worse than the slaves themselves.You know with all the race crap blacks pull...THATS why 99.9% of whites dont like them.This may sound like im a complete racist but i assure you i am not,i have met many respectable black people,ones that were educated,talked properly,dressed decently,were nice to their servers at diners etc..My best friend is half black and knows how i feel.2 more things,for all the black people who are still pissed about slavery and want to make an issue of it keep this in mind,the CIVIL WAR was one of the bloodiest wars and thousands and thousand of white men died to stop slavery,and it was a white man who issued the emancipation proclamation abolishing slavery,so theres your restitution right there,thing 2,to the 99% of black people that voted for Obama simply because he was HALF black and not based on his platform,id like to thank each and everyone of you for helping to make our country even worse off than it was before,because of your mistake of voting for him you know how long it will be before another black man is voted into office?i know im going to get alot of shit for this post and thats fine because really i dont care what you all have to say..im never coming to this crybaby bullshit site again,it pisses me off
