TIMES ARE CHANGING IN EDUCATION
In the past we have received money to purchase supplies for our students to use in the classroom. but lately their is no money to purchase supplies. We were told recently at my school that we would receive $75 per teacher to purchase supplies. This includes anything we need to use with students such as paper, pencils, crayons, markers, glue sticks, scissors, construction paper, and poster boards. We can only use school supplies catalogs, so how do you stretch $75 using the expensive school supply companies. Now if was given this same $75 in cash I could surely spread it thick, but my hands are tied to the big box suppliers.
