Nasty PA Home Schooling Editorial

by Tracy
(Franklin, PA)

Heather, our local paper ran a nasty editorial regarding home and cyber schooling. I have written a rebuttal, but need to check a fact. How can I "prove" that on average of $10,000 a year is paid to the school district out of federal, state, and local taxes, without the child ever receiving any services from the school district? Help if you are able.


Hi Tracy,
I'm not sure if this will help you...
You will find some helpful information about your state's school spending at this link: OpenPaGov.org.

Click on "School Spending" and then at the bottom of that page, click on "Access the SCHOOL SPENDING database". At the top of that page, you can choose any school district in your state.

A couple other links that may help you in your research:
Education Law Center of PA
Data First

Hope this help!
Blessings,
Heather :)
