NY: Mom Accused of Sending Child to Wrong School

(Rochester, New York) A 31-year-old local mother, Michelle Aponte (pic), pleaded not guilty last Thursday to charges that she sent her daughter illegally to an out-of-district school.
Aponte’s daughter legally attended East Irondequoit school Laurelton Pardee from 2005 to 2007, but when Aponte moved to Rochester in 2007, she filed paperwork that falsely claimed her daughter lived with a friend in Irondequoit for the 2007-2008 school year.
Aponte faces two charges, making a punishable false written statement and filing a false instrument. She has a court appearance scheduled for March 12.

It's crazy, but I think Aponte would have been okay with the school system if she had listed herself and family as illegal aliens from Elbownia or if she had said she was homeless.

Kind of ironic, eh? We've got millions of people illegally in the U.S. sending their kids to schools with impunity while we're prosecuting actual citizens for having kids in the wrong schools.
