Question description

Corporate Sponsorship and Robin Hood Tax Laws

Hello Class! For this discussion you can choose which question you respond to.  Feel free to respond to both; however, only one is required. Please respond to ONE of the following questions:

Question A

Read the article on page 243 of the text. As both federal, state, local, and school budgets get tighter, while operating costs increase, should schools accept corporate sponsorships? Does this cross a needed boundary of governmental, political, or economic influence? Choose your side but include the pros and cons as part of your opinion. Include documentation from at least 2 other sources within the last 8 years.

Question B

One of the states' responses to lawsuits about equity and adequacy in the funding of schools is to take property tax revenues from a wealthy district and redistribute the funds to lower wealth districts. For example, Texas has well over four million students and more than one thou- sand school districts. One hundred and thirty-five of the more wealthy school districts must share their property tax revenue with the other 900 districts. The 900 districts educate 88 percent of the public school students. Many are calling this a "Robin Hood" system of school finance.

Questions for Reflection

What is your gut reaction to the idea of a Robin Hood school finance policy? What are the strengths and weaknesses of this strategy?

How would you feel about this if you were a property owner in one of the more wealthy districts?

How would you feel if you were a property owner in a less wealthy district?

If  you were a taxpayer in a Robin Hood state, what type of accountability would you want to see?

This is a discussion! Must be between 75 to 150 words depending on the topic.
