I remember when public school was free....
I just got the bill for Dd1's school fees. $212! She is a jr in high school....when I was jr in high school it was free and we had school buses (her school got rid of them her freshman year). But I guess I am just old.
Here is what the fees cover:
$5 class dues, $25 consumables, $10 handbook, $70 honors Spanish IV, $30 electricity (it's a class) $10 desktop publishing, $25 honors English II, $30 chemistry, $7 chemistry workbook
Do your kids have school fees?
**Let me just add I understand why there are school fees and no buses. It is a really good school and I am happy with it. It is just frustrating when the community doesn't see the value in supporting the school system, so the school has to charge for some classes. I also realize the the amount they charge probably doesn't cover the actual cost of the class per kid.
