Robert Fernandes, an IT manager and father of three, moved to Forks Township, Penn. last year seeking lower property taxes so he could afford a larger home which could also house his elderly parents.
His wife home-schools their children, ages 7, 4, and 1.
He is not interested in being forced to pay $7,143 in taxes to fund public schools his children do not even attend.
â€œWe don’t even use the public system, yet I am being forced to pay all this money into a public school system,” he told Leigh Valley Live. “I don’t think that’s really either fair or just or even ethical.
“It would be the equivalent if McDonald’s were to force vegetarians to pay for their cheeseburgers.”
