Non-residents are a drain on public schools
Original post made by Rebecca, Menlo Park, on Jun 23, 2006
As the mother of three children, I want my kids to attend good public schools. For this reason, we purchased a house that was more expensive than we thought we could afford at the time. My husband and I work so we can live here. We also volunteer at our kids' schools, join the PTA, attend fund-raising events, donate items for the auction, etc. Do you think that non-residents are donating money or time to the schools?? It's not simply the cost of the education that we're being cheated out of.... think about it.
