Why do public schools budgets have to pay for the busing of students to non-public (non Shen schools)? This comes out of taxpayer money for families that choose not to go to Shen schools. That’s over $100,000 is expenses. Why wouldn’t this fall on the family that chooses to go to a private school? Thank you.

A. Because it is the law. While some families send their children to private school, they still pay property and income taxes that fund public schools.
