A mother and daughter in Pensacola, Florida, have been accused of rigging a high school homecoming court election by accessing accounts without authorization, authorities said Monday.

Laura Rose Carroll, 50, was arrested Monday and booked into the Escambia County Jail with a bond of $8,500, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said in a news release. Her 17-year-old daughter was taken into custody and transferred to the Escambia Regional Juvenile Detention Center, it said.
When reached by CNN, a man identifying himself as Carroll's husband, said, "We have no comment right now. Our lawyers told us not to speak and we will have our day in court."
Escambia County Superintendent Tim Smith confirmed to CNN that Carroll is an employee of Bellview Elementary and has been suspended.
The release says investigators found Carroll, an assistant principal at Bellview Elementary, and her daughter, a student at Tate High used Carroll's district-level access to enter accounts, where hundreds of fraudulent votes were cast for the Taft homecoming court. The votes were flagged as fraudulent when 117 votes allegedly originated from the same IP address within a short period of time. Authorities reported that FDLE agents found evidence of unauthorized access linked to Carroll's cellphone as well as home computers.
Investigators said they found almost 250 fraudulently cast votes for the homecoming court.

 

 
It was only a matter of time...

At a high school here in vernon the principal was fired for going in and changing the grades for his son in his grade 12 year.

Of course....

 

....and when the kid gets to college, his profs are wondering how the hell he managed to get those high school grades, because he obviously doesn't know the subject matter....:rolleyes:

Not the same but when I was in elementary school (Vancouver), as long as you had a pulse, you generally always got promoted to the next grade.

We don't hold any kids back anymore.  You just have differentiated learning in same age classrooms.  More simply put, when a teacher plans a topic lesson you have to do 4-5 different plans for learners at different levels.  

 

Couple that with split grade classrooms and you're do 7, 8 even 9 different lesson plans for each topic you're teaching

Well if government would listen to teachers and provide more money to hire more classroom teachers, more  resource teachers and more EA's we could probably tackle it

And truthfully, those aren't the kids who suffer the brunt of it.  Teachers spend 60+% of their time with the struggling kids, it's the ones who don't struggle that get neglected

Maybe it's time to revamp the school system.  Instead of just having kids going through the school system as a "jack-of-all-trades".... there should be way to "filter" out kids into fields of their choice/interests.

 

If some kid is really struggling education wise and seems very likely to drop out... maybe it's time to enroll that child into a more manual labour job.  Train him/her a trade like construction, plumbing, agriculture, etc.  Isn't that how it's done in Germany and Japan now?  Seems like a good model to follow.

This is from 2019 but smart money says nothing has changed since then. Brought to you by the good folks that are so worried about your children and freak out about Dr. Suess.

Wtf did they say to justify this b.s.?

 

edit: Tennessee it’s because it would hurt their case against same sex marriage 

Louisiana its because it would ban two 16 year olds from getting married if they had a kid

Idaho its because it would infringe on parental rights

Big brain logic there guys

I haven’t been able to find much yet except for Republicans voting down the bill that was proposed by Idaho Democrat Rep Melissa Wintrow to block marriage to youths under the age 16 from getting married without the consent of the child, parents and the court. The current law allows children younger than 16 to get married with parental and judicial consent, and teens who are 16 and older to marry with only parental consent. 
 

I don’t know how they square this with caring about children.

We had corruption with our president of the students association at Kwantlen in Richmond. This is I think 1990 at the old Kwantlen Site. The President said he arranged with the manager of the Tragically Hip to rent the PNE Agrodome and do a concert there. I don't know how many students bought tickets. But about a week or so later. The President was gone and so was the ticket money. Never heard what happened after that. I chalked it up to "too good to be true" and didn't buy. I guess taking a marketing diploma helps with the B.S. detector.

Sad thing is Kwantlen is rife with corruption even now with it's Student Association. Or at least since 2018. So much for teaching ethics in business.
