FTA: "Now that those students are back in a school supported by taxpayers, they cost the city and state an additional $14 million a year. That's a large chunk of the $35 million the city will send to charter schools this year."

If that's not an argument for tax wavers to parents who choose to put their kids in Catholic schools, I don't know what is.

Sent 3 children to Catholic schools.
Math is math, english is english whether you are in Catholic school or public. Yet we got nothing..
textbooks and busing yes nothing else. We didn't
get help dumb move cause now all the kids
from Catholic schools are lumped into public.
No brain. How can you find out how much it
costs to educate a Catholic school student
vs public in any related grade. Yikes.
