Readers Write About Class Fees

Dear SP-EYE...

Beyond the fees issue, many schools/teachers seem to add basic classroom and janitorial supplies to the kid’s school supply lists. This year, we were asked to provide Clorox Wipes, and dry erase markers, and this is not the first year. In the past, we’ve had to provide a disposable camera and a donation for processing the film.

Dry Erase markers? Aren't those basic classroom materials?

Chlorox Wipes? Certainly we see the need...but again, if it's needed for the school, then it should be part of the budget.

Disposable Camera/Film? There's just no way you can convince us that THAT is a necessity! And who uses film these days anyway?
