Vouchers invite private competition, yet cost the taxpayer's no more money. For each child that "opts out", and uses a voucher, that leaves the "extra" 20% for improving the public school that they would have attended or allowing it to be used for other public goods/services.
    I don't know enough about the voucher program to comment much about it. I always was under the impression that it was only for poor people. I don't know what portion of my tax money goes towards schools either.

    You obviously do not understand the Texas property/school district taxation scheme.

    Vouchers need not be based on income, or even the quality of the local public school.

    In Texas property taxes (and some state lottery funds) are used to fund public school education.

    Do you guys have to pay state income tax? We pay a lot of income tax, here in MA. I think we pay like 5.3% flat income tax on all income.

    Well I don't know anything about that. I know how I feel, and that is that such subjects are not appropriate for school, except for maybe a casual mention during health class. I see no need to delve into sexuality at school with minors, aside from safe sexual practices and things related to that.
    you came into the thread a little late, further back i posted a link of what MASS. has done since homosexual marriage was made legal , in its schools.

    Texas has no state income tax at all. We use mainly property and sales taxes to fund our state/local gov't.

    Well that's not the case in my area. My son goes to school, and he hasn't learned that homosexuality is a good or a bad thing, and guess what he's a heterosexual too! What are you afraid of? Do you think the schools are going to turn your son gay or something?

    And OMG! God forbid your child does happen to accept homosexuals as being human beings! That would be earth shattering huh?

    tell me, why should someone be taught something, which is a contradiction to what they have been taught elsewhere?

    That's sweet! I wouldn't mind living in a state with no state income tax. I get screwed over every year and end up having to pay in. One year, I forgot to renew my health insurance and had to pay an extra $600 in taxes to Massachusetts, even though I didn't even visit an emergency room.
