Correct...if you read your annual property tax statement, you will see that there is a separate line item tax for schools that goes to fund education. The County Board of Commissioners would be responsible for any decisions on the other public agencies mentioned above.

Many teachers who have looked for jobs in the past 5 years have applied at both public and private schools...I know I did, and I had friends who did. I accepted a job a public school because it was in my community and because the administration supports their special ed students (I teach special ed). I also know that there are many families who, due to the economy, have had to pull their children out of private school and place them back in public school. When that happens, more teachers are needed in the public schools. So many factors come into play in the issue you are discussing...the economy, student enrollment, services provided/taught, personal preference, etc.... There are people who regardless of their household income continue to send their children to public school. Private school is a choice that not everyone chooses.

galofthe80s 1 year, 9 months ago on MOVIE REVIEW: 'Magic Mike' becomes Soderberg's weakest effort to date

I am a married woman in my 40's and I went to the movie with friends not exactly sure what to expect. I was thrilled that the movie not only had its fair share of handsome men, but that it had a plot too. The movie really summed up the stripper/club lifestyle and the reality of the struggles of growing up. I would have no problem allowing my 17 year old son (who is a conservative, academic person) watch this movie so that he might catch a glimpse of the club lifestyle and understand that even the party people eventually have to face the decision to grow-up and become responsible.
