I for the life of me don't understand this. This is nonsense.

Each taxpayer pays part of THEIR property taxes to go to the education of their children in public schools. The AMOUNTS have been broken down. Simply refund that part of their property tax and then don't accept them into public school without paying tuition. Is that so hard?

Don't know about anyone else, but I for one don't appreciate MY tax money going to an institution I believe is wasting it when I can use that money better. Homeschooling and private schooling IS on the rise like it or not. What is more, EMPLOYERS are more appreciative of homeschoolers because they have a record of actually WORKING to accomplish something. At least they can read and perform the necessary tasks a business needs.

I am also hearing more college students tell that they don't think their education matters anymore. It is difficult to get even a menial public service job to help pay off the college debt because of the volumn of competition for unskilled work. This rabbithole goes FAR deeper than simple school vouchers. That should tell us something.

The fact remains if you want a properly EDUCATED generation of adults to take over the reins of the country and its operations, you HAVE to prepare them before they graduate. If you can't do that and expect them to magically pay off a school debt with no job, you must be smoking some funny weed.

Parents are not made of money. They like to tell their kids that. So they don't NEED to be paying TWICE for the education of their children--once if they want to rescue their OWN children from a second rate institution, and twice to give to that same institution to ruin somebody else's children.

This is the way some parents who care look at it.
