People actually pay to go to public school? (elementary, jr high, and high school)

Where I am from and still am, we don't pay to go to public school. I am not talking about school supplies, breakfast, lunches, clothes, etc. I am talking about tuition just to go to a public school. I find it ridiculous.

  • here if you want your child to go to all day kindergarten you have to pay $80 a week. It's so unfair to those who can't afford it.

  • I haven't heard of anything like that. I can understand why because of this economy.

  • We don't pay tuition but we have so many darn fundraisers, I'd rather just write a check and call it good.

  • Not tuition but there are classroom dues and PTA dues and other random items you are not required to purchase but it is 'highly recommended' Like some Social Studies Magazine and some at home software for the computer...

  • We never paid "tuition", however when my son was in Jr High/High school we had to pay "Fees" for many things.. Locker fees, textbook fees, lab (sciene & computer) fees, and others as well. That's not really paying a tuition, but it's not a free education either.. lol
