If there was a flat tax across the state, I think the issues with distributing monies across the state would be even more complicated...
I dont think it would have to change currently everyone's property tax is pooled, and the state gives each district a per student allowance to spend. no reason why the sales tax couldn't be estimated then divided by the number of students in the state.
the only local tax that benefits local schools is local property millages voted on and passed by you to improve the buildings and other capital.
