Right, then those educated people will leave to somewhere else that doesn't have such ridiculously high taxes that are paying for schools they don't have kids in. I should know - my fiance is one of them. They could get away with this when there was a lot of established business in the area, but this is no longer the case
It's unfortunate, really. Most people want good schools, and don't mind paying a bit higher in taxes to get it, but there is a point of diminishing returns that is often just blown right by once you get bureaucrats into the mix who start dominating politics and realize they can just raise taxes whenever they want... and you end up in an economic free-fall. It's sad because the area is nice and the schools are good. They just can't afford to keep going the way they are.
