QUESTION: I understand that school funding comes from federal, state and property taxes. But why anyone would think relying so heavily on property taxes is a good idea? How was this system established in the first place? What are reasons for and against it? What has been done to overhaul or at least modify it?
TO DO: Read the following and summarize / communicate in a more creative way:
- Mark Brilliant, UC Berkeley history prof (writes about Proposition 13)
- Movie: Waiting for Superman
