my oldest is a freshman in high school. sooooo much of what she does is on line. she needed me to purchase power point so that she could access some of the assignments. she has a cruddy teacher in one subject and needed a tutor.
how do low income families keep up???? i am shocked at how much is expected and required now-a-days in high school. back in my day we could get help from the teachers, we could get hand outs, we could do many free things and get by. the colleges were not as competitive and therefore a B with good test scores would work. now it seems that you need above a 4.0, sports ($$$), and charity work. forget an after school job... no time.
I am now really really understanding why there seems to be a bigger and bigger gap between the haves and the have nots. When a basic public education is THIS hard.

Don't purchase powerpoint! Use Open Office: www.openoffice.org , or she can use the Tech Center at school. Instead of paying a tutor, send her to peer tutoring at school.
