How much is your public school worth?

25 Jan

An Ohio mother was convicted of 3rd degree felony grand theft of $30,500, and sentenced to 10 days in jail with three years probation. The felony charge means she won’t be able to obtain her teaching certificate (which she has been going to school for).

Why? Because she used her father’s address on forms so her girls could go to a better school.

Ignoring the racism (and ridiculousness), lets look at the dollars. $30,500 for 2 kids, for 2 years. That’s $7,625/ year. Ohio State charges $6,102/year’s tuition at a regional campus. Is your public school worth more than university?
