And the American criminal justice system is broken too

In what kind of a sick, twisted society can a mother be convicted of “stealing education” by sending her son to the wrong school district?

I mean, I’ve known for a while that the whole “war on drugs” thing was just another tool of the class war in disguise (and you know what, Tupac has been dead for how many years now? And yet “instead of a war on poverty, they got a war on drugs so the police can bother me” remains just as relevant? That’s great, I guess. That’s lovely) – but I guess it’s good to know that the commidification of education is leading us down a similar, equally depressing road. At least we are consistent.
