*Not* correct!  If vouchers for "non-public" students were allowed I might buy your argument.  Those students' parents *are* already paying the public school taxes but not getting those services (like bus services, but also much more).  Those parents are already paying *twice* for their students' educations.

 Public Schools provide FREE transportation via school bus to non-public students currently.  When will that service become paid for by the state ?
