Back to School Supplies, Do They Really Need it All?

Here we are just over a week away from the kids in School District 2 going back to class and I for one have not gotten their school supplies.  Why you ask, well one reason I am a poor planner and have just procrastinated, the other reason, I am annoyed by the list of back to school supplies.

It’s not as bad as the kids get older, but I still question why my 6th grader needs 4 dry erase markers and yet doesn’t need a dry erase board.

As I look at the back to school supply list for Sandstone Elementary School I recall that when my kids where in 3rd grade they needed 50, yes I said 50 number 2 pencils.  Who the hell goes through 50 pencils in the 3rd grade.

Before you all go ballistic on me and how I don’t know anything about what I am talking about, I have close friends that are Teachers that I respect highly and I get that Teachers spend their own money for school supplies to teach MY children, that is not what I am annoyed about.

Why is it that the School District doesn’t supply more needed in-class supplies for the teachers?

Didn’t we just pass some more mill levies and what do my taxes go for?

Feel free to give us your opinion.
