Just when we think that we have heard the arguments for and against the proposed EPISD bonds, we learn this from a USA TODAY reporter:
“A proposal to allow parents to use a portion of their local school property taxes to offset expenses for private tuition, tutoring and other education options for their children likely will be presented to the Legislature next year in a form designed to crack through what has been a solid wall of opposition.”
Presentations will be made today, Monday, October 17, 2016 to the house public education committee.
In 2015 the state supplied 50% of the district’s revenue.
If parents are given the right to reallocate some of their tax money away from the district what effect will that have on the district’s budget and its ability to pay for things like the bonds?
We deserve better
