    David, we should not have to do that, agreed.

    Yes, because they also benefit from the public schools. Good public schools increase the value of real estate, especially houses, so when they homeowners move and sell their homes, they will profit from having good public schools near the home.

    Yes, because educating them will get them better jobs to contribute to YOUR Medicare and Social Security.

    yes. And if you don't call the police or fire department all year, you should pay the portion of your tax that goes to fund them, too

    Property taxes are not assessed nor paid according to how many children you have in public schools.  They are assessed on "owned houses".  Factors taken into consideration are the size of the property, front property footage, garage or no garage - varies per municipality.  If you own a house, you pay property taxes, and those taxes pay for the roads leading to your house, and similar infastructure.  If you didn't have a road, you would have an awfully bumpy drive home and you wouldn't be allowed to drive to your home because it would not yet be a public road.  Get educated!

      I'm not talking about general fund taxes, e.g., for road construction and maintenance. I'm talking about property taxes that are specifically for funding public education.  Look at your property tax statement to see how taxes are allocated.  Public education will almost certainly be on the list.

    Yes, and if you don't like it, you can move to somewhere else where the property taxes are lower.
