In "Family friendly?" (Forum, Jan. 11), Jack Mitchell chides all Utahns for being "reluctant to raise everyone's taxes to educate their own children." He then questions the "love of their children." All of this is under "family friendly."
It would be more accurate to chide only the parents of school-age children for their dereliction and pillaging of funding for the education system.
As a taxpayer with no children in public school, I pay 47 percent of my property tax to my school district. I have no displeasure with paying my share, but to expect me to pick up even more of the unfunded liability for other parents is getting old.
