School district residents should be permitted to vote on whether or not to allow district funds to go to charters
Public school districts constitute the "delivery" system for the state's constitutionally-required common school system. Local tax revenue, as well as state tax revenue, is used to support the students that attend charters. School district patrons vote local levies for the support of school district operations, not chartering.
Charters are foisted on school district residents without their consent. Policy that permits the flow of school district revenue to charters without expressed approval of voters is illegal. Time for a Boston Tea Party.
