Cleveland Plain Dealer
July 8, 2010 by Post Team
Cleveland Plain Dealer:Parents & Families supporter Frank Glandorf parents published the letter oppressed by the unfair system of support for children in the Cleveland Plain Dealer in June 1927. The letter was in response to the newspaper Making sense of child support in Ohio: editorial (6/19/10), for which F & F Board President Ned Holstein, MD, MS was interviewed. Glandorf wrote:
Alimony is the modern equivalent, moral of the debtors’ prisons, which were banned in the 19th century. Failure to pay child support is a felony. Falling behind in payments due to job loss results in fines, jail and a felony conviction – making it even harder to find work. It’s just a downward spiral …
The ODJFS “Most Wanted” ad for February 2010 lists of parents only. Their occupations are diverse as health care workers, restaurant workers, factory worker and temporary services. These men are not financially better off than the “poor mothers, ‘that the Plain Dealer editorial judged to child support. By contrast, the editorial claims that parents “refuse to pay despite, officials say, having the means to do so.”
Such retrogressive measures for child support and gender discrimination only serve to drive parents to the margins of life for their children.
