ED, girl kept from school over residency feud [D87]

As I've explained before, keeping a small number of children out of a school district costs the school district more money than it saves because the district forfeits per capita subsidies from the state.

I can accept that a school district decides disqualifying non-residents is worth losing money from the state. But I can't accept a media and a public discourse that ignores the real life consequences of booting individual students. It's not that complicated.

Chicago Tribune (Crystal Yednak) has the latest foolishness.
A 7-year-old girl has returned to her Bellwood school after a residency dispute with Berkeley Elementary School District 87 kept her out of classes for six weeks.
