Hey, Morticia.

Title VI is not an example of using public funds for the operation of
the school. These finite monies are funds specifically earmarked for
books, and the monies involved never enter into the operating budget,
and are therefore not part of the school operation. As opposed to
public tuition money, which is *not* finite (if you accept it from one
student, you have to accept it from all).

BTW, in the faceless world of internet newsgroup posting, you should
know that "uh, that's totally wrong" and "uh, joe" doesn't read quite as
friendly and earnest as I know you intended. ;)

Romey from Fairhaven here... Anyway, I assume everyone out there gets
Title VI funds, no? Its federal money for textbooks and library
supplies, and now a whole lot more, that, at least in MD is distributed
through county boards of education. We get abut $400 per year from
that... Maryland also has a non-public schools textbook program where
we've gotted a couple of thousand bucks to spend on "textbooks". The
paperwork is outrageous, but we have gooten a lot of nice books out of
it, mostly not textbooks.

uh, joe? didn't you say you wouldn't want public funds?

and legally, accepting public money gives it to them.

no offense, i'm just picking bones here. feel like commenting?
