Tanya McDowell, 33, a Connecticut homeless woman, has been arraigned on larceny charges for enrolling her 6-year-old son in a school district where she had no residence. The Norwalk schools claim McDowell owes them $15,686 for her son’s education costs prior to her arrest. If convicted, she faces up to 20 years in prison. Meanwhile, the Connecticut Parents Union is calling on state lawmakers to repeal legislation criminalizing parents who seek a better education for their children.
