“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
As for taxes and how they are divvied up:
Personal Property Replacement Tax
51.65% of school allocation goes to Cook County currently.
Now...I know this is old data. But:
The state took 270M
Cook took in 125M
The collar counties of Kane, DuPage, Lake, McHenry, and Will took in 135M
The rest of the state took in 9mill.
The suburbs are subsidizing about 8% or $10million of the Cook County school district from what I can gather from that. Of course those numbers have changed since 2000 but I bet the allocation percents havent changed much.
