    Because the rich can affort private education settings that are staffed in a way that is not crowd control they want to avoid paying taxes to educate "other people's" kids.

    The level of complaints that come from people about school taxes are a shame.  In far to many cases people are taxed on the wrong things at the wrong times in the wrong places.

    If we had a national education system, with a better curriculum, and fairer levels of funding..............we'd do a lot of good.

      until recently. I will always vote against them now until A. all people pay them and people who buy the most expensive new homes don't get abatements and B. for-profit charters and vouchers are banned. I don't pay to line David Brennan's (White Hat failing charter schools) pocket and I don't pay to prop up a school system hurting from a pedophilia scandal.
