Hilton calls for education tax refund if schools don't reopen: 'Why should you pay for service you are not getting?'

Hilton: Coronavirus misinformation hurting America

Media misinformation relating to coronavirus cases is hurting America; Steve Hilton weighs in on ‘The Next Revolution.’

"The Next Revolution" host Steve Hilton suggested on his show Sunday that parents should receive education tax dollar refunds if schools stay shuttered in the fall.

"We believe in decentralization on this show and we believe above all in people power," Hilton said during his opening monologue.

"It is time to use it over this school fiasco. If your child's school won't open in the fall, demand your money back so you can find an alternative. It is your child, your tax dollars. Why should you pay for service you are not getting?"

Hilton's comments come after Education Secretary Betsy DeVos expressed plans to have American schools open for in-person classes by September, and threatened to withhold funding from schools that do not reopen for the new school year.

While President Trump continues to push for a fall reopening, some Democrat governors are pushing back, pledging to delay on-site learning for the upcoming semester if it's unsafe for students and staff.


"This is not safe, it is harming our children," Hilton said.

"Reopen schools or give me my school money back," he added. "Take it to the courts… fight for your right and your money. Tell your school board, tell your mayor… if you won't open my child's school, I want my school money back.

"Stand up to the bureaucrats."
