Everyone should share in paying for education
I agree with a recent letter writer that people would be more upset about our tax burden if they had to send a weekly check to the IRS. I also think a monthly check to your local school district would open some eyes. People have escrow accounts and when you ask them, they have no idea what their tax payment is. Let’s have STAR rebate checks come directly to your house and then write the check.
It’s amazing that you can own an empty lot and pay school taxes on it, yet people who rent don’t receive a bill. How about the children you see sent to Grandma’s house from other districts? How about everyone sharing equally in education?
