Pay like everyone else...? Residents of SWR pay some of the highest school taxes and our District gets about half of the amount of State Aid that our neighboring Districts get. Know before you speak, jack!

A quote from another article: http://www.newsday.com/news/local/suffolk/ny-...
“He estimates school taxes on his four-bedroom house will rise $1,950 next year, to about $9,000.”

Gee, now instead of paying less than my neighbors and I were paying, he’ll be in the same ballpark. They were paying much less for years. Seems fair to me that they pay their share.
