I hate the communist classroom

I'll be homeschooling this year, so this will no longer apply, but I still think it's wrong...

I remember my daughter's Kindergarten year. We bought all brand supplies because, well, we can afford them and they are better quality and last longer so that's what I wanted her to have.

Then I saw what she was actually using and it's not what I purchased!

Second grade, everyone was supposed to bring their school supplies to orientation. We brought ours and were faced with buckets for each type of supply where everything gets dumped in together and is redistributed. Seriously? I opened up DD's crayon box and were Crayola crayons and markers in there? No. Roseart and some non-brand markers.

This irritated the shit out of me because I paid extra for those and she wasn't even the one using them!

I saw that another mom had labeled all her child's supplies at home with permanent marker. Wish I would've thought about that. But it doesn't really do any good because my daughter's 3-prong folder had some other kid's name written on the inside.

So it wouldn't bother you if some other kid was using things you intended for your child to use?

So....the parents that refuse to buy the 6 packs of crayons that their kid will use that year, should that kid just have to sit out when the class does a lesson where they need to color?

Kids trade stuff in school. At least my daughter and her friends do. Did that happen?

Wow. No way! See, republicanism should be treated like a religion. It's a belief system and that violates it entirely. And if we then lower our own 'quality' it's wrong, but to ask for the BETTER option that someone else pbviously wants but doesn't want to PAY FOR IT...and then WE'RE yelled at and called 'in the wrong' for wanting it enough to 'prioritize' it. They don't have to raise THEIR value system, why would they when they can get it free. So they're
in the right for using something WE cared enough about to PROVIDE our child, and we're 'selfish' and 'in the wrong' for wanting what WE bought to go to OUR own children. I wouldn't stand for it. That communist bs is only 'poor' interested and leaves the ones with higher values beaten down to be 'equal' because it's WRONG to have 'high standards' and work for them and 'RIGHT' to have them and just rob the proclaimed 'narcissistic' other side...okkkkk? Says who? The one only out for liberty so ling as it PROFITS them, but if it robs US, we're 'the bad guy'? UUUGHHH. Disgusting.
