Here we are at the onset of election season, and the cries and hand-wringing and requests and fulminations and demands and adjurations and abjurations regarding sufficient funding for public education have begun.
Reflect, for a moment, that land rents in the Bay Region are huge, gargantuan, capable of displacing masses of people, and then consider that land rents are only glancingly taxed due to Prop 13 (and the low tax rate that preceded Prop 13) even though land rents rise due to the growth and evolution of community. Why, then, given that public education is chiefly funded out of property taxes, doesn't the activist population turn rampant and high-heel a demand for socializing much much more of land values?
Come along on a FREE walking tour surveying San Francisco social movements' intersect with real estate that squarely addresses public education funding and this fall's school board campaigns.
A donation will be made to the candidate of your choice if you come along and ask two relevant questions at walk's end!
