***Edit: Just because I used the title as ridiculous doesn't mean I do not buy all the supplies on the list. I do however think it is BS that the schools expect the parents to supply the classroom with all these needs on the list. I see all these teachers saying they have to buy a lot of their classroom supplies out of pocket, but guess what you knew this going into being a teacher. NOT everyone can afford little extras for the classrooms. I do think it is ridiculous that my kids are always getting notes sent home saying that I need to send in more crayons/ glue sticks/ dry erase markers/ Clorox wipes/tissues a few weeks after I just sent that stuff in. I am a single mom on a tight budget with 3 kids now going to school.
We all pay school taxes and what the schools decide to do with the money is not the parents fault. Teachers pay taxes I get that but you are the ones who complain about the parents who do not want to "share" supplies or supply the classroom with the supplies. Obviously a ton of parents do not agree with these ridiculous lists, and some do not care.
In my kids school their are not little white boards for each student. There is however flatscreen TVs in all the classrooms and hallways. I live in an rich upper area and pay higher taxes, so they chose flatscreen TVs over supplying the classrooms. I am sure that my kids school is not the only one that does that.
