    Glad you agree with me that words are not actual support.

    I can't remember the guys name, but there is some dude who comes on this forum about every two months who proposes a system where all taxation use is directly voted for. Which would be a disaster in practice, I wish I could remember his name.

    He is one of those people who thinks philosophy is the greatest source of knowledge and truth, which of course is a ridiculous notion.

Therefore, communities get some really nice buildings that look good and that is IMAGERY, not substance, when you are discussing education. US students have regressed on a world wide scale due to Federal teaching guidelines of sound good, accomplish nothing platitudes and programs with no substance. In New York State, the schools don't like home schoolers because the Local School Districts get about $88/day for each student from State aid and they don't get that for the home schooled. That just gets lost. The Local School Districts don't want to acknowledge when home schooled are ready for college long before their institutionalized counterparts and fight to prevent issuing the paperwork necessary to enroll these students in College. If the home schooled are ready for College long before the Local School students, it makes the local School Districts look bad. Actually, it just puts a microscopic view on the fact that our educational system has some flaws and no one wants to fix them because they will lose their monetary windfalls. Online education is the future and it only requires that the online student be properly motivated and acknowledges it is the student's responsibility to do the schoolwork. It is not a teacher's responsibility to beat knowledge in to the student's head. Many parents think that is how school works and that schools are just convenient babysitters. There is never a "one size fits all," but in the USA personal responsibility for one's educational motivation is a lost agenda.
    Agreed, more money for teaching how to use paragraphs and less for sports complexes.

    None of course, consent does not exist within a state.

    and you obviously support it, scat
    otherwise, you would have relocated to a place where such taxes were not compelled

    the parent chooses to pay twice
