Privatization Citizens have a right to know how their hard earned tax dollars are being spent. Charter schools cost tax payers more than public schools. In our neighboring county, Metro Davidson, it costs $9,300 a year to send a student to a charter, while it costs $4,500 to educate that same student in public schools. We as tax payers are footing the bill for the additional $4,800 every year for schools that have a track record of providing sub-par education.
“I do not agree with privatization of public schools. Public schools need to be accountable to the community. They need to be accountable to the taxpayers. When we start privatizing schools or even parts of the school system it becomes a for-profit venture and that profit is not returned to the tax payers. We lose the right to be involved as a community in decisions on how our money is spent. We lose our vote."
