Freedom ain't free

Schools are getting more rundown as maintenance is deferred, utilities, school supplies and motor fuel keep rising. Federal funding keeps decreasing . We need to find a fair way to pay for public education. Funding schools through a sales tax makes more sense than any other tax. Rich or Poor everyone benefits from education, therefore everyone should pay for it, no exemptions no loopholes. A sales tax is IMO the only fair way to fund education

Problem is Gov Perdue is the wrong messenger, with the Lottery quickly becoming a fiasco and her own waffling on public education policy she doesn't have any credibility left to sell the idea.

Any tax considered for education needs to written that provides that the tax receipts only go to education, not the general fund.
