I was shocked when I saw this article on the Internet.
Woman Charged “Dropout Fee” in Applying for Drivers License
Are you kidding me? The State of North Carolina charges high school dropouts a penalty when they apply for license? See http://www.digtriad.com/news/local/article/193957/57/High-School-Drop-Out-Mixup for the entire article.
The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles charged her an extra $50 because her state record showed that she never graduated high school.
Apparently North Carolina charges all high school dropouts this $50 fee. What other states charge such ridiculous fees?
High School Drop Out Mixup
It gets worse.
The woman charged extra for her drivers license in North Carolina, Hillary Leath, was actually a high school graduate. Again, read the entire article at http://www.digtriad.com/news/local/article/193957/57/High-School-Drop-Out-Mixup . Hillary Leath graduated from high school, her high school mis-identified her as a high school dropout, and then that high school dropout record followed her to the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. How is that fair?
What’s next, debtor’s prison for high school dropouts?
Charging someone an extra fee for being a high school dropout when they apply for a North Carolina drivers license seems unfair. Hugely unfair.
It reminds me of the debtor prisons of the 1800′s and before. People, even people in the U.S. or Great Britain, could be imprisoned for their non-payment of debt. How was that ever fair? Wikipedia has an article about debtor prisons.
