D.C. Investigates Md. Boy Who Brought Drug To School

WASHINGTON (AP) — The D.C. Council and school system are investigating why an elementary student who brought cocaine to school last week was attending classes in Washington because his family lives in Maryland.

The boy was reunited with his mother this week after being placed in foster care. When the parents appeared before a D.C. judge, they argued the city didn’t have a right to take their children because they are Maryland residents in Prince George’s County.

School officials say it’s not uncommon for out-of-state students to attend D.C. schools because the city has all-day kindergarten and pre-K programs. But out-of-state students are supposed to pay tuition.

The school system only has one investigator to verify students’ residency.

Four students were taken to a hospital after they either sniffed or swallowed the drug.

    Momma’s use this as a place to warehouse their kids while they stay & watch Jerry Springer, drink & shop all day. You the dumb ass tax payer foots the bill.

    Well Mom,your boy could see just how much you loved cocaine and just how important it is to you,
    so he probably proudly brought it to school for a show and tell,of sorts.
    They learn by example mother,shame on you

    Just another sad case of, Non- Parenting U.S.A.

    This article is not clear. Was he placed in a foster home in the district? That would explain why he attended DC schools. How did he get the drugs and where? Was it from his biological home or was it from the foster care setting that he lived in? I am beginning to hate WJZ….the stories are not clear at all. It is not just this story but so many stories I have read lately that does not make a lot of sense. Get it right.

      If you read the article and not between the lines he was put in foster care after he brought the coke to school. This liberal thinking has alot to do with the problems. Give people everything and the will not be responsable for ther own self and cxan not take care of a child.

    Kevin I understand that he was put in care after he brought the cocaine to school my thing was about the jurisdiction issue and where did he get the drugs? If the judge allowed the child to return home to mom, he must have had good reasons to believe that it was safe and that it was a drug free environment. I can only hope. I was just expecting more from this story and it was just not good enough for me.
