We can only have a productive conversation about how tax dollars should be spent once we know what really happens, and how, and why. This report will give you information, in the form of examples and supporting legislation, to help you avoid being side-tracked when these arguments are raised. It explains how three New England states and their local governments have historically used tax dollars to pay for schooling and related services from private institutions – including religious schools, for-profit organizations, and even schools in other states. It also addresses the mistaken notion that public schools are not allowed to turn away students.
