Tearing the Lives of Children

This is a disturbing article detailing how government can't get their stories straight and hurting innocent children in the process. It involves two families who have been thrown out of one county school system to be placed in another, all due to a boundary dispute and property taxes between the counties involved.

The real issue here is poor communication and a willingness to help these families. Forget who's paying the property taxes! Leave the kids alone and let them finish in the school district they are used to. This really happened because someone wanted to get their name on the radar before promotion time. Anybody want to make a bet on it?

I wonder sometimes about our local government...
