Most tax-paying residents of California endorse the new standard because their tax money is being used for their child's education, and not being used for teaching children in another language. Results are evident even though the ESL program has been used for only two years. The ESL method is more effective because of the removal of flaws such as unnecessary costs ... their native language. However, it remains unjust that people who do not pay taxes have any say in how the educational system is conducted.

Thus all of the tax money will be going towards the education of the children whose parents paid taxes. Ultimately tax money is ...
