Should you get a tax refund if you send your kids to private school?

So if you send your kids to private school (either religious or not), why should you not receive a tax refund or credit or something to offset the amount of property taxes you paid that directly fund the public schools?

What about people without kids at all? What you're suggesting is public education's funding come just from its users, and thus not public education at all. It would be tuition payments in the form of taxes.

Seriously.............

I don't have kids, nor do I plan on them. Can I opt out completely?

Hell yes, in the form of vouchers. This year in tuition alone we will spend $27,500 on tuition for our 3 boys. I don't expect the state to compensate me for that but I want the tax money I paid for my kids to go to public school to be put toward my tuition.

It is to every citizen's benefit to have a public that has the basic skills learned in grade school and high school and college.
A person may not have kids but they still benefit from doctors, lawyers, engineers, sharing the roads with drivers who can read stops signs etc.

I agree completely, that was my point. Public education is a public good and should be paid for by all taxpayers.

I want the tax money I paid for other kids to go to public school to be put toward paying off my car. I'm just sayin'..............

You benefit from education in other ways. The fact that you don't have children in the system preculded you from being able to utilize a voucher.

So, since I paid for part of their education, can I get a discount for their services when I need them?

Right. But if it's partly my responsibility to fund other people's kids with an education, isn't it yours as well? Regardless of your own kids, and your own ability to pay for a better education for them, why do you get a pass on poor people's kids, but I don't? Because you have your own? That's just not a good enough reason IMO. IMO, if you can't afford to pay for your kids, don't have them, and I'm confident we agree on that front.

I voted no.

But start another poll in 3 years when the last of my kids is through HS and my yes vote could be bought if the price was right.

Schools are part of the community, so everyone should share in the costs. However, given the condition of most schools, if parents choose to send their children to private school, they should receive some vouchers, not necessarily for all of their taxes, but at least half. That seems like a fair compromise....the parents get some money back, and still contribute some to the system to maintain the public schools so that they are available to the community.
