Teaching tax in school | ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ Herman’s blog

Misunderstanding tax also leads to mistrust in government. And a healthy amount of mistrust is necessary in a functioning democracy, but when the system is too opaque, problems become harder to address. Most people have a vague notion that tax is used to pay for things like roads and other infrastructure. However, I think if people fully understood the purpose of taxation and the way that money is regulated and spent, they would be slightly less bitter about it. Maybe.
