Using property taxes to fund public schools prompts inequities

JEBB HARRIS, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

It’s been nearly 40 years since Californians revolted against runaway taxation by voting for Proposition 13, which reduced property taxes. But today California still has the 10th highest burden in the country when property tax revenues are compared to median household incomes, the Register reported. The real estate comeback and rising property values have driven inflation-adjusted property taxes from $788 per person after Prop. 13 took effect in 1978, to about $1,430 in 2014.

One reason that politicians continue

Fighting to Deny School Choice

Share

By Thomas Gallatin · at The Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/posts/48966

What do a failing school, a recently passed law granting parents greater authority in demanding change from underperforming schools, and a petition signed by a majority of parents seeking to start a new charter school in response to the failing public school have in common? All of that still isn’t enough to stop a local government from preventing parents from having the power of choice. California’s Anaheim Elementary School District sought to throw out a petition signed by parents attempting to convert a failing school into a charter school. Fortunately, an appellate court rejected the school district’s request and the battle will continue.

Property Taxes to Fund Homes for School Principals and Teachers

 

By Ron Boltz of the Pennsylvania Liberty Alliance

 

There are many reasons why the PA Liberty Alliance supports school property tax elimination, but at the core of our support for this measure is a basic desire to be treated uniformly and fairly as taxpayers, as well as a belief in our right to be secure in our homes without fear of the government confiscating it.

 

The goal has always been simple…expand the tax base and tax us all exactly the same way. The school property tax results in a highly regressive, arbitrary, and unfair system where people pay extremely different rates even if income levels and home values are the

Suckers PAY to be manipulated-indoctinated

Share

By Rev. Austin Miles at Renew America

A current movie, Beauty and the Beast subtly introduces homosexual perversion by showing two leading males kissing, which gives new meaning to the description, ‘A Fairy Tale.’ Notice how subtle that kiss was presented. So subtle that movie goers, including kids thought, ‘did I just see that?’ This is a part of the gradual indoctrination of accepting sexual deviance. Most films today push immoral and social-political ideology.

This flick was produced by Disney Films that lost its original focus on wholesome family entertainment after the death of the founder, Walt Disney. Disneyland Park has since become a haven for the LGBTQ crowd who work there and who stage their own ‘Gay Days’ at

America, you’ve been punked

Share

By Bruce Deitrick Price at Renew America

The Reading Wars were always chaotic and confusing. Here’s the gist:

On the one side, you had earnest, sincere people warning the country about the dangers of non-phonetic approaches (these were usually called Look-say, Whole Word, sight-words, and other jargon). The warning was always the same. Nobody can learn to read that way. It’s a hoax! Don’t do it! You’re being punked.

On the other side, you had patronizing professors of education saying the exact opposite. Phonics is old-fashioned. Dull and dreary. We’ve got the fun new way to learn to read. Kids think of words as graphic designs and memorize them. Easy! No problem!

Dr. Celia Stengler, one such professor, panned a phonics

Dignity and Fairness Matter for Every Child in the Locker Room

In February, the Trump administration rescinded Obama-era guidance that directed all U.S. public schools to allow self-identifying transgender students to use the restroom corresponding to their self-expressed gender identity. (Photo: iStock Photos)

The American Civil Liberties Union recently noted in a blog post that “the burden of confronting and remedying injustice falls on the shoulders of the oppressed.”

There is some truth to this: The oppressed are powerful voices in any battle for justice. But when it comes to defending the most vulnerable among us—our children—it is chiefly the responsibility of parents, teachers, school administrators, and lawmakers to defend their rights.
