SF Examiner Publishes My Anti-Parcel Tax LTE

Dear Everyone;
  Recent news articles and an SF Examiner editorial reported a trial balloon of the SF School Board looking to place a parcel tax on the ballot to raise funds for teachers pay and benefits. I wrote an anti-parcel tax LTE and the Examiner published today.
  The on-line version is not available but this is a copy of what was published by the Examiner with Libertarian affiliation. In the newspaper edition it was at the top of the LTE page. The Editors did change some of the message but it still works great.

  Teacher tax exemption
  A parcel tax to increase teachers pay doesn�t help teachers. Teachers complain that the cost of living has increased beyond their pay. The school administration claims a shortage of available funds.There is a very simple fix.
  Specifically exempt full-time K-12 school teachers from paying state income taxes and sales taxes. This way you reward school teachers for their work without having all tax payers dig deeper into their wallets.
  To make up for lost taxes, divide up the amount needed among the 60,000 K-12 students families. Then bill each parent for each K-12 child's share. Why tax everyone to pay for someone else�s child attending public school?
