A citizen pays taxes into the school system (lots of them usually) and unless you live in Alaska or Idaho, you get none of that money back when you homeschool. Homeschooling is usually funded out of your own pocket. So the way I figure it, you are doing the school system a favor by decreasing (? lol) the teacher to student ratio. You're welcome, School District.
Since when did we start expecting the government to even educate our children? I'm not even quite down with that mentality, honestly. If we are going to implement such a socialist program, why don't we also have funded health care?
