Texans should change how they funds public schools, 15 January 2008, Wilson County News, Floresville, Texas
So, my first question is, “Why are the parents of home-schooled children being taxed by local school districts?”
While the Texas Comptroller may commend those parents who home-school their children, the state penalizes them for doing so.
Obviously, fairness is not one of the urgent issues being faced by our legislators.
While parents home-school their children, many have to pay up to $12,000 per year for their district’s public education when their children don’t attend public school. It’s called yearly property taxes, of which more than 80 percent goes to the local school district.
My next question is, “Why do homeowners who don’t have children and don’t use the public schools have to pay public education taxes?”
My last question is, “Why do parents who send their children to private/charter schools have to pay another tuition public school tax when their children are not attending public schools?”
