Lincoln Parish School Board to Schedule April 2012 Tax Election

The Lincoln Parish School Board (LPSB) will consider Tuesday night scheduling a Saturday, April 21, 2012 election to re-impose a parish-wide 10.21 mil ad valorem (property) tax, and a Ruston School District 2.61 mil property tax that are set to expire in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

Between the two levies, over $4.2 million is collected annually from Lincoln parish landowners. The money is used for maintenance and operation of parish schools.

See here the memo and resolutions.

We will have additional reporting later on the upcoming Tuesday meeting.

    School taxes are always sold as being, after all, “for the children”. Well, taxes and spending at all levels of government are crushing the economy and the opportunities our children used to be able to depend on the economy to provide. I say it a perfect opportunity to vote against taxes, “for the children”, at least until we see more realistic spending plans and taxpayer respect from government. Increased spending on public schools has not translated into increased student performance or quality of education, it can be argued.
