Two Things

There are two major things that have been going around in my school lately.

One, we seem to have been experiencing a paper shortage. I’m not sure where the process got blocked, whether it was that there isn’t as much paper available or if it is just that we can’t afford as much, but teachers have been having us do things like write our warm-ups on our own papers, because they didn’t want to waste the paper with hand-outs.

Two, the school’s budget. It has become something of a joke to many of us. When we received our science textbooks this year, there were not enough to give one book to every student, so only the kids that specifically wanted one could get one. The school also has several fundraisers, typically one or more a month, from dances to bake sales to book fairs to school merchandise sales to days when everyone at the school is invited to Chic-fil-A.

So, basically, schools need funding so that they can get simple things like paper and textbooks. It really shouldn’t be as hard as it is. But, well, at least we still have a well-furnished library.

  1. I was seeing some of that here last school year. The social studies teacher told me there was Jo homework because there were not enough books to go around and she was only allowed to print a limited number of papers. I don’t believe in homework, but definitely not for these reasons!
