The essence of public school funding is that people who do not have children in the schools subsidize people who do. That is why people who do not have children in the schools are the moral – and legal – equal of “school parents.” People who do not have children in the schools enjoy (or should enjoy) precisely the same right to express their views on any and all matters pertaining to their schools, to be listened to, to influence policy and curriculum, to run for school board, and to serve on the school board.
