Sorry, All Full Up

It looks like Klein's offer of amnesty for NYC non-resident NYC employees with kids in city schools is more popular than I'd imagined. According to the NY Times, 132 employees have applied, including 59 teachers, 7 APs, 6 principals, 6 guidance counselors, and 6 secretaries.

Apparently, many of these employees were simply invited to bring their kids, and didn't even claim false addresses. While they'll have to pay from now on, these employees will not be charged the $5,500 annual back tuition others will face.

Are we supposed to believe that these people (and those who encouraged them) were unaware it's illegal to send your kid to a school district you don't live in?
