Of course gas taxes are for roads so the more gas you buy the more roads you pave, and property taxes have absolutely nothing to do with schools, so there are families with 2,3, or 4 kids in school that might pay nothing, while families with no kids in school that might pay thousands.
I see your point. I don't think it is fair for a farmer (because he has a large acreage to farm his crops) to have to pay for a highly disproportionate share of the tax burden for the public school system. Perhaps parents could at least pay something, in the form of a user fee; not necessarily the full cost of the student's education (that would be thousands of dollars), but at least several hundred dollars, to help offset some of the burden.

I was brought up in public school, and I don't really have any qualms about my own education.

I went to public schools in Jacksonville, NC, Dumfries VA, Manassas, VA, and Woodbridge, VA.

In elementary school, we actually said prayers in the morning, yes in PUBLIC SCHOOL, in the 80s and early 90s. In high school, my group, the FCA, were granted permission to pray in front of the school around the flag pole every morning. It was fantastic.

These days, I know Christians are persecuted in public school, but if you are in a group, then there is a voice. People are losing this perspective.

Dave, it is TOTALLY the responsibility of the citizens to know where their money is going and how the gov't is spending it. You could be part of a socialist regime and not even know it, with your insinuation in the first page of this thread.

Just to throw that out there... Without public education you will see a huge spike in crime and general disorder. As well as America falling incredibly behind in the technologies department.

This country would be destroyed without the public education system.
