High school students are not obligated to pay for classes or books because of taxes. Taxes pay for a student’s seat in a class and their books. In college students can get scholarships, grants, loans, and financial aid to pay for their expenses. Some student might get financial aid to pay for their books or classes and others might have scholarships that pay for books and classes.
