I wouldn't mind paying if every working person in the city paid the tax. But, it's only home/building owners that pay it. In our case out of about 14,000 working people in the city, only 6800 pay the school tax.I can say that even if you don't have kids of your own in school, other people do and those children are going to eventually grow up and take over the many jobs throughout the country that one lives in and I personally would want them to receive the best education so I don't suffer under the ignorance of a generation due to me being unwilling to pay for it. This is why I wouldn't be bothered to pay taxes for schools even if I don't have kids in them or go myself anymore. I know I once was in school and benefited from it and would want the next generation to get the same benefits of schooling that I got.
