Taxpayer Citizenship and the Right to Education
This chapter introduces the concept of taxpayer citizenship and its role in constructing racial inequalities in U.S. history. In particular, the introduction examines the way taxpayer identity has often served as code for whiteness and as an alibi for racial segregation. This chapter also examines the connections between taxes and rights in the history of racial inequality in the U.S. and identifies the pitfalls of justifying policy and spending through the language of taxpayer rights.
