Dean is correct, matter of entire community of USA support our future generations.
If you had children that attended public schools there were families who also contributed to your child education. Any part of city, government, roads, city officals all paid by our taxes, via property or sales tax.
There would not a county or city move here in US you would not pay for taxes for schools.
Only benefit smaller home less tax you pay.
If over age of 65 you have reduce taxes most cases by approx. 50% or more.
