Your daily dose of Class War: "Father Who Donated $40K to Jesuit Private School Sues When Son Gets Turned Down"


"A father who donated tens of thousands of dollars to a prestigious private school in Houston is suing the institution, claiming that school administrators rejected his son despite promising that his generous contributions to the school would ensure his son's acceptance.


Bardwil recalls that a school administrator went to lunch with him and during their conversation pushed a piece of paper over to his side of the table that read "$100,000."

"I told him at that moment that if I make that type of large contribution I expected that my son will go to the school and the administrator said 'Yes, of course, absolutely," said Bardwil.

After consulting with his accountants, Bardwil told the school's administrators that he would be able to pledge $50,000 over a five year period."
