People who don't have children have to pay school taxes, too, and they don't get anything out of it either.
I can't pick and choose how much of my Federal tax or Massachusetts state tax (I live in NH but work in MA) I am willing to pay. I have to pay it all even if I disagree with how that money is used.

"People who don't have children have to pay school taxes, too, and they don't get anything out of it either."
As do many elderly people whose children are long married and paying taxes on their properties.
This is a socialist wealth redistribution.
Exactly! If a couple has children, they should either pay to educate them or educate them themselves.
It doesn't take much money, btw, to homeschool. The whole concept of "school" as a necessity is a sham. Yes, teachers will always be necessary, but not 7 hrs./day, 5 days/week.
Actually, they sound like productive citizens. I welcome more of them moving in . I see too many who come here and then whine that every road is not paved; the sidewalks don't have granite curbs; the "special education" is inadequate; the public sector is underpaid; etc. I like the idea of a married couple not on the public payroll looking to be left alone. Keep in mind, given her proximity to Keene, she no doubt is seeing the daily examples of folks at the college who have not done a days work off of the public payroll in their lives.
