No such thing as a free lunch

Tell that to homeschoolers who live in the homeschool friendly state of Texas and think they can claim federal money without consequence. Galveston County's Daily News even spells it out:
The federal government gives money to the state, which then sends money to public schools across Texas, said CCISD Spokesperson Carrie Taylor, the school districts are then responsible for distributing some of that money to eligible private schools and home school groups with nonprofit status located in their boundaries.

Federal --> State --> School districts--> Home schools. That's called a thread of logic with strings attached yet homeschoolers continually fall for this hook, line, and sinker. Not unlike these "poor, unsuspecting souls" in Oregon. Frankly, ailing school districts would rather keep it, so let 'em. Just say "no" to federal funds, public school sports, public school dual enrollment, cyber schools and other wolves in sheep's clothing.
