Ijust heard some schools are requiring parents to send toilet paper, beach, handi wipes, and these kind of supplies. These are above the usual school supplies due to schools being low on their budget? What about the parents who can't afford these extras what do they do? It's sad this is is happening because some parents just can't afford it, but yet, some schools are low on funds? What are your thoughts?
Education should be one of our top priorities. It is such a shame schools have to pinch pennies for such things. I don't mind buying things to help out, but I shouldn't have to. We should be investing in our children. We are so screwed up as a nation, when we think it's OK to give the rich a tax break, and schools can't afford toilet paper. They should take the billions of dollars that they will make when the rich tax cuts expires and invest in our children. We are falling way behind in education compared to the rest of the world.

OK, I see no problems with them asking for extra supplies, tissue, wipes or sanitizer, but to ask for TP and bleach is crazy. I know a lot of school districts are having a hard time, simply because school levies aren't getting passed. To ask for those things, is asking too much. They can and still should supply those things.
