UPDATE: In September 2011, Ohio Governor John Kasich granted Kelley Williams-Bolar executive clemency, reducing her felony convictions to first-degree misdemeanors.
Kelley Williams-Bolar tried to give her kids a better life by sending her children to the nearby majority-White school district where her father lives — and she went to jail for it. Now her career as a teacher is in jeopardy.
Real justice requires that the punishment fit the crime; what Williams-Bolar is facing is clearly over the top. Call on Ohio Governor John Kasich to publicly denounce her punishment and also do all he can to right this wrong.
