WHY THOSE QUESTIONS ON THE PWMFA VOTER GUIDE? — PART 9

This is the last post about the questions our voter guide for the following election, Chairman, Prince William County School Board, At Large. This election is scheduled for November 6, 2018 (see 2018 ELECTIONS).

  • Note that we chose not to publish our voter guide.  However, WHY THOSE QUESTIONS ON THE PWMFA VOTER GUIDE? — PART 7 contains a complete list of the questions and news reports you can read to assess how the candidates might have answered our questions.
  • Since the reasons for including the first and second questions are fairly obvious, we consolidated the explanations into this one post.

First Question

Do you support or oppose allowing home school students to participate in school sports programs?

Why this question? What is there to gain by keeping home school students from participating in school sports programs? Home schooling parents save the tax payers money, but still pay taxes.

Second Question.

Do you support or oppose allowing the school board to have taxing authority to impose taxes dedicated to Prince William county schools?

Some of the members of the school board claim that the Prince William Board of County Supervisors does not give them enough money to spend. If School Board had taxing authority, these board members could make up what they consider a deficit in funding. On the other hand, we would be paying higher taxes, and no single body would be squarely responsible for the setting the overall tax load the citizenry would have to bear.

Please do appropriate research before you vote. Then please vote for those candidates you believe will do the best job for the children in our county.

Thank you and God bless.
