Wasn't there a Supreme Court ruling about this? Something about what's good for the public school goose being good for the private/church/parochial school gander; i.e., if property taxes pay for a child in that district to be bussed, they have to pay for any child in that district to be bussed to whatever school they attend. I googled a bit and didn't find anything, but something like that sticks in my memory.
You are correct. It is in play in my school district - not because they want to do it, but because it is a federal mandate.

Now EVERYBODY's kids get to ride on the stinking school buses!
