Mandatory school fees

I was disappointed to read over the past several weeks just how many Virginia counties and cities impose school fees.  I can only hope that they were adopted one-by-one by school boards trying to manage their budgets.  However, when taken as a whole, they are an assualt on free public eduction.  There needs to be a clear directive from the State Bd of Education against fees.  State and local taxes are the only fair way to pay for educating all our children.   Thank you.   John Conover
