So here is another example of the GOvt trying to be a parent. It would seem that a parent in our society has no rights. If you actually try to be a Parent the govt comes and takes away your child and tries to throw your butt in jail.

Valerie Borders, an Arkansas mom, made her 10-year-old son Nequavion walk to school after being suspended (for the fifth time) from riding the school bus. Was she congratulated? Nope. As per ABC News, Mom was charged with child endangerment and faces one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.


But we have heard these stories before. But my question for discussion is "What can parents do"?

Clearly making a kid walk to school is not Abuse. Yet, what option does this woman have? Can she take legal action against the powers that be?
