School Funding

Free education is actually not free after all. While America offers students a free public school system, revenue must still be raised to pay for public education in elementary through high schools. Taxes (from local municipalities, state and federal taxing entities) are often cited as a funding source for school districts. And that is often the case. This section addresses all manner of school funding issues, such as how schools are funded, criteria for funding, and ways funds are allocated. This section also provides information on options for student loan repayment, what to do when you can't pay back your loans, and more.
