you pay taxes. You don't see the costs. Local school budgets...
You pay for schools in everything you buy. How can that be fair to merchants? What if it was broken down when you shopped at Target? How much of the price goes to local and state sales tax, local property tax, and federal taxes for every $100 you spend on underwear? Add in the taxes transferred to you for the manufacture, storage, and transportation of those goods and yet it's called 'public schools' like they are just there.
