BAEO holds annual confab in D.C.
Wisconsin State Senator Lena Taylor chatted with social activist Kelley Williams Bolar, the Ohio mother who received national celebrity status after she was jailed last year for lying about her residency to get her daughter in a better public school. Williams Bolar refused to send her child to an assigned failing public school and instead lied about her address. Taylor and Williams Bolar were among over 500 parents, politicians and educational activists who attended this year’s Black Alliance for Educational Options Symposium held in Washington, D.C. Over 100 participants from Milwaukee attended. Due to space limitations, a full report on the conference will be published in next week’s MCJ. Holt photo
