    It's an interesting question. However, it doesn't take into the account that there are many gays and lesbians who are parents.

    Maybe a more precise question would be "why should people who don't have children have to pay taxes to educate the children of those who do?"

    The next question is then "is it fair to tax/charge people for any services that they don't use, such as roads, garbage collection, fire protection?"

    My answer to that is that no, it may not be fair, but from a practical standpoint tracking ALL services and ONLY charging the people who used them could turn into an administrative nightmare. So. You pay some taxes so kids can go to school - their parents pay some taxes so the firemen come around and spray water on your stove when it catches on fire.

    Hopefully things even out somewhat. And if not, well, just regard paying taxes so kids can go to school as the payback for YOUR getting an education.

    OK here is a question. Why should the people who can't have children pay taxes for public school? or why do private school parents pay taxes if their kid doesn't even go to a public school?

    The simplest answer I can think of is that everyone pays taxes. Also, you went to school as a child, think of all the future children you can be helping. Otherwise, I am sorry, but I can't help you.

    Everybody (even kidless me) should pay for schools because it's better for everyone to have as well-educated a citizenry as possible.

    I have to pay for a lot of services I don't directly benefit from.

    But it's not for the sake of the parents alone that we educate the young, or for those young themselves (though it does and should benefit them), we do it for ourselves and everyone else.

    Breeders? Bigot!

    Why do you have to pay taxes to educate the children? Because these will be the children that will be paying your Social Security when you are elderly or disabled.

    It is the common good!

    Because it is EVERYONE'S responsibility to make sure that our children are properly educated. As Whitney sings: "I believe that children are our future!" Whether we have children or not, we will depend on future generations as we get older.

    Sorry, I don't usually disagree with you often, but I think you are wrong on this one!

    Why should i have to pay taxes for gay people who adopt kids and send them to school?

    Maybe because the breeders have had no choice about spending billions of dollars to research a cure for AIDS-a disease caused and spread by careless and immature sexual attitudes and practices of the gay community. The previous is not intended to be malicious towards gays, but in a socialist society (which we are) everyone pays for everything!
