We have to spend about 30-40 on supplies to be shared in the classroom. I'm not a big fan. I mean I really with they would just let my kid use his stuff so at the end of the year I could get the extras back. As it stands I get nothing back. Not even the scissors or the ruler. I have to re buy those every year. I am sure it is easier for the teacher but it also means that my kids can't pick the cool folders they want or fun pencils...they have to be yellow... I dunno it kind of sucks the fun out of school supply shopping.

I hated it. When my daughter moved to a school using communal supplies we spent considerably more on supplies and had to send replacements much more frequently. I think communal supplies are treated with much less respect, and I see it as a missed opportunity for kids to learn to be responsible for keeping up with their own stuff. I can understand the teachers point of view, but as a parent I hated it.
