88. The school district hired a private investigator to do surveillance to make their case
How much did that cost them as opposed to simply educating those two kids?

Here, there are people who truck in their kids from neighboring COUNTIES - they bought land there to live since the property taxes were cheaper. But then they are appalled that the schools in those lower taxed counties are not as good as in this one (DUH!), so they bring their kids back to this county for school, driving them over as they go to work. They see nothing wrong with the practice. :wtf:

I don't mind playing the property taxes even though I don't have any kids - I WANT the children who will be the taxpaying adults in a few years getting a better education. If they don't have good educations NOW, it will cost me more in the future for more people on assistance or in prison. But I am pissed that people who have gone out of their way to duck paying for the schools in the place where they live are getting better educations on my taxes, even when they can afford to pay top dollar no matter where they live.

I don't understand the move in this Ohio case to destroy the life of this woman who is just trying to get better futures for her daughters - was there no effort to negotiate a settlement or did they come down hard solely to send a warning to other parents doing the same thing?
