    Many recent news articles regarding the Vermont state-controlled school financing program have mentioned the income figure of $92,000, below which taxpayers receive the “income sensitivity” adjustment.

    At best, in past years, we had joint income of two-thirds of that amount and in recent years, considerably less. Although we file for the adjustment every year, we have no recollection of ever qualifying for it.

    It seems there is a disconnect between what the state government would like us to believe and reality. A survivor of the Great Depression used to quote a saying of the time: “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.”
