You know, when you start looking for it this stuff is happening everywhere, every day of the week.
There's a long story behind this one, in which the Wake County (NC) government school system decided that discriminating against kids and their parents based on economic status was wrong. Major local media outlet thinks that wrong is right, and is now complaining that some parent-teacher organizations are helping their associated schools more than others are helping theirs.
Note to socialists everywhere: This is why we work and strive to be successful--so that we can do these things. This is opposed to your ethic, where you steal from us and use it to buy favor in quarters where people do not strive. Beware of the outcome when we decide that we are tired of being stolen from and decide to act on that decision.
To those parents with children in the "rich" schools, a thought. If you can afford to do this, why not put that money to work and put your kids in a private school instead?
