133. her FATHER pays taxes in the town where the children went to school
aren't his granddaughters worthy of/entitled to a decent education?

What of all the childless people in the town who pay property taxes and don't have kids in the system- The education of all of Americas children is the responsibility of EVERYONE. At least that's the way the system has been set up.

When we spend money to educate the children of this country we are investing in ourselves. This case is such a sad statement about the inherent racism and class-ism that bubbles under the surface of our great 'society'.
