Education Funding

The education funding formula is very complicated and should be simplified. The Legislature also has a tendency to move money around too freely. Why does the gasoline tax support education? Why do 70% of Vermonters get their education property taxes subsidized? The gas tax should be used for transportation needs and income tax should be transparently income tax rather than hidden in a property tax bill that municipalities are forced to collect. Few people understand how the money flows but it should not be so hard to understand. The Legislature should be transparent with regard to where money comes from and where it goes and a tax should be relatable to the reason it is collected.
