Things must have changed since I went to school. All my parents had to buy for me was a lunch box, a box of Crayons, a writing pad and a few pencils. Do kids need more than that today or are parents so poor that they can't even afford to buy their kids these few items? By the time I got to high school and it was an engineering high school, I had to supply my own slide-rule (before the days of calculators), a couple of drafting triangles, an architectural and engineering scale and that was about it. And, I bought those items from money that I made cutting lawns and shoveling snow--it didn't cost my parents a penny.
