Ask yourself this simple question. "Why aren't KC metro tax payers getting money back from the school districts despite at home schooling?"
Let us just say that the answer is pretty obvious. Governments almost NEVER return money they feel should have been spent. They suck at budgeting and the amount of real money per child spent out of that collected is RARELY accurate. Despite all of the bullshit that Kansas residents heard about formulas, East vs. West etc.. it was all bullshit. You see, they never planned on having kids at home for the majority of the year, which has exposed their bullshit lies.
Think it isn't possible? Check out this story about a district that is returning money to residents and tell me that you aren't getting screwed. And tell me again how vouchers wouldn't work?
