I have family who live in a Boston suburb and they have to pay to have their children do after-school sports at the public school. She just paid 310 dollars for my cousin to do Cross Country (and she'll have to pay for him to do soccer in the spring)...which makes it impossible for lower income kids to do it. They also have to pay 600 dollars a year for the kids to ride the school bus. Thats in addition to their property taxes....I personally don't agree with it. Just thought I would add this to see what others opinions are since I find it interesting.
