Most of those who are demanding school vouchers aren't even paying school taxes.


How is that? From what I've observed, people asking for school vouchers tend to be of a conservative nature, have jobs, pay taxes and own homes.


That is only partly true.

A large share of those demanding school vouchers simply want to be able to take the money ALREADY being spent on schools for their kids, and move their kids - with the money - to schools that actually educate. Of these people, many technically aren't paying property taxes for schools directly because they rent - and quite a few aren't paying those same taxes indirectly because their rent is government-subsidized.
