In our school district we are required to pay ridiculous school fees for our kids to go to a public school. I already dont agree with that. On top of all the money we have to pay every year for our kids to attend "free" school the schools are making parents buy supplies for the teachers. Such things i am referring to are dry erase markers and now even erasors for the white board. I dont mind the tissues so much cuz my child uses a ton of kleenex but really...erasors? anyways Its going to be two weeks before I could even get those things and there is a part of me that says its not my responsibility to make sure the TEACHER has all her supplies when they get all this money from me as it is. Does anyone else have to buy supplies for the teachers besides stuff for the classroom like tissues, paper towels? plus we were asked to buy highlighters and i have a feeling thats for her too.

If it were because I can't afford to I would let the teacher and the administrator know that unfortunately it does not fit into my budget. If I could afford it then I would gladly do for the teacher. Teachers spend a lot of their personal money on your child through the school year. Those stickers, neat bulletin boards, fun books available to read, toys to play with....those are not part of the school budget. They purchase that out of their own pocket. To supply a teacher with a few items would not offend my senses. I send my child to a private school, pay a very high tuition, and am asked to "donate" all the time to the school. A school that is for profit! But I made my choice and you have to make yours. I do plan on public school in the coming years and I will send the teacher a basket full of stickers, pens, paper, pencils, and other goodies for him or her to use for the class.Â My child and other kids are worth it.
