168. that may not be how it works, but it sure does make the argument
that the children are getting something that isn't being "paid for" by her family pretty weak.

What about the taxes going from her rent in Akron? She isn't getting the benefit from that. Is an education the responsibility of society or not?

How about all the people in your town who didn't have children in the system? Why should they have had to contribute to the education of YOUR children given your perspective, that- only those who live in the town and pay taxes to the school district- deserve access to the school. Why stop with the 'town line'? Why not just charge parents and leave those without vested interests out of the burden?-

Your attitude doesn't really square with the notion that the education of Americas children is Everyone's responsibility. Seperate but unequal isn't supposed to be the American way.
