32. Vagrancy 2.0
A middle class person would have gotten the paperwork approved. In any case she might deserve some administrative fine. Criminal charges are kind of harsh.

I taught a lot of years. Rich kids could go to schools out of district, even from suburbs. Saw it all the time.

If they are trying to collect public money, seems tricky to me. Wouldn't their local district have had to pay for them? (Not your problem. :))

And, (not to hijack, but) I fully recognize the evils of capitalism. In short, it demeans workers, depletes resources, and its main product is garbage. And certainly necessities like education, health care, prisons, should not be profit making enterprises. Heck, I'm for socializing just about anything that isn't nailed down. (Worker-owned cooperative contractors?)

OTOH, I can't see the government producing vacuum cleaners. And I don't see how we can ignore individual initiative for the things that solve the problems we face. It will require a mature system. We must go post-consumerist, but there should always be innovation.

I'll get back to you when I have it all figured out. B-)
