Usually schools have registration fees. For example, we have to pay $150 US to enroll my son in Middle School. We also need to purchase school supplies, which will be about $50 US. Some schools require you to pay for textbook rental, which is $80 US. Many of these fees are waived if you are poor. Also, if you own your home, you pay property taxes to the government, which funds our schools. We pay about $9000 a year in taxes. We live in an area where property taxes are very expensive. So while "school is free" there are a lot of hidden costs.
