jim -- "people with no kids" are absolutely NOT forced to pay for people who send multiple kids to school..."
if fact, another slot by the pool opens up every few minutes in Sun City, Arizona...Bonus! no pesky kids around to eat into the free, residents only municipal Ben Gay fountain outside the pharmacy!
I live in Suffolk County NY and have two questions -- How many people REALLY understand all those numbers on their tax bill?-- Do you think people are reacting to school (and library) budget votes because these budgets are the only ones they can "control"?
Whats the big deal. only kids of rich parents should be educated anyway.U don’t need to go to high school to flip a burger or work in walmart.
The Tenafly caller says his tax bill "a bargain" because he has 2 kids in school and he moved there so he would not have to pay for good private schools. He further says that it is outrageous to cut the budgets. Really?
It seems outrageous to me that people with no kids are forced to pay for people who send multiple kids to school -- especially when people are purposefully moving to a district to get a cheaper education on the backs of others.
