    again, isn't that basically what we have now, where school funding is heavily dependent on local taxes?

    Any employer who didn't pay their employees are out of business and or in jail.
    I am going to presume that you mean benefit other than pay.
    They didn't have to. And for education for now they still don't. THEY DIDNT HAVE TO. Yet they still did. Use your brain and think about it. We used to live in a free country. Apparently the Soviet Union didn't die, the bastards just moved here. Those benefits cost money and employers only have so much. Case in point Chevron's profit margin is about 10%. 90cents of every dollar Chevron makes is spent on expenses, a major one being employees as is all business's. ALL business is in business to make a profit. No profit no more business. No more business, no more employees.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Right that's why they aren't going to be adding a whole new benefit. So education should remain public.

    People would be able to afford their children's education if they weren't taxed out of house and home.

    You still don't get it. Maybe you will someday. I doubt it. But I've been known to be wrong.

    I get you don't want to pay taxes. No one does. Services cost money.

    Services do cost money, your right. In the case of education WAY more than it should and for exceptionally ****ty results. GOVERNMENT services cost a hell of a lot more, come with more red tape, and piss poor service. Not to mention all the bull**** that comes from it being PUBLIC. My children's education thank god is NOT dependent on government. They will NEVER set foot in a public school as a student.

    At home. I started reading when I was 2 and a half and writing before kindergarten.
