Already overtaxed, so why pay school tax?

Former school parent would prefer not to pay for others' kids

As someone who lives in an overtaxed society, the recently settled government/teachers dispute left me wondering why I am forced to pay school taxes at all.

I graduated from high school in 1978 and my three kids have been out of the school system for years. I had no problem paying school taxes while my kids were in school.

I wonder if people would be OK with paying a cigarette or tobacco tax even if they don’t smoke?
