School taxes

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

This is in response to the gripe of private school parents who say that they are "paying double" by paying school taxes as well as tuition.

The purpose of public school is to educate the next generation of workers and voters. We all pay school taxes before we have children and after they are grown. It is to everyone's benefit to have all children become responsible and productive citizens rather than being supported by us on welfare or in jail.

We all need to support public education in all periods of our lives for our own benefit.
