Create Tax for Jewish Education – Forward.com

Leonard Saxe proposes creating a (voluntary) tax to fund the Jewish education of families of the many Jewish educators and professionals who cannot afford day school (Create Tax for Jewish Education – Forward.com.) While this is  definitely a forward-thinking (no pun intended) proposal aimed at areal and growing problem, my only question is what happens to the families of other professionals who work for other non-profits or serve the community. Why should the child of a social worker at a Jewish retirement home get to go to day school but not the child of a social worker who works for a Children’s Aid society?
