I guess what I don't understand was my grandchildren had to bring 409 cleaner, hand sanitizer, paper towels, tissues and stuff like that. I don't mind getting anything they need but the school board should furnish cleaning supplies for the schools. If all families got a copy of the list like we did, there is no way a lot of them can purchase what was ask. We have two grandchildren and both had list with cleaning supplies. What about the families that can't afford that stuff. For one thing, it hurts a childs self esteem enough to not have "brand Name" stuff anyway. How are they going to feel when they are ask to bring cleaning supplies and they can't. I know the School Board has a hard time but everyone is going thru rough times. They could cut school to 4 days a week with longer days and save enough money to buy their own cleaning supplies. Just my opinion.
WHY WOULD THE SCHOOLS ASK FOR CLEANING SUPPLIES THIS IS SOMETHING THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS SHOULD PROVIDE I CAN SEE THEM ASKING FOR KLEENEXS AND HAND SANDTIZERS BUT CLEANING SUPPLIES I DONT THINK SO WHAT DO THEY DO WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS HIRE ALL THE GOOD OL BOYS FROM THEIR CROWD OF PARTY GOERS WHAT A JOKE

*Sarcasm Alert*

It makes total sense that the tax payers should chip in and share equally the burden of supplying your child for school. If your kid loses more pencils than anyone else, or wastes all of their free paper doodling, that should not be your problem at all. Everyone should just pay higher taxes and chip in evenly to make sure your kid learns from an early age that they have no responsibilities and that the taxpayers will chip in and take care of them. I'm ready to pay my share. I feel guilty that I haven't so far.

We bus them to school. We buy their breakfast and lunch . We pay the teachers. We buy the books. We pay the utility bills. Now these freelunchers want us taxpayers to buy their school supplies. What do those freeloaders want next? Our first born?

You should see how many children ask the teachers for paper, pencils, folders- they expect a handout. It is sad. My mom always got us a backpack, pencils, paper, notebooks, crayons, folders, a little pack of tissue, glue, scissors, markers and some Luden cough drops. Sad that now we expect all of that handed to us. Embarassing!

That's what the PTA should be doing. They should be raising funds that will be spent on school supplies. When my children went to a school in Bowling Green, KY that's how it was. The PTA had a space in the school where they stored and handed out supplies to any child that came in to get them. PTA has parent volunteers. So how about it parents, how about getting involved in your child's education.

I can understand school supplies and I know that they put extra on the list for the kids whose parents won't buy supplies for their kids but it's all the fund raisers like this last one is for God knows what they just said fundraiser and never told what for but you have to sale at least 12 buckets of cookie dough so your child can play on inflateables for a day but they have the entire school saleing, not just a grade so pretty much if you don't want to pay $150.00 for your kid to play for about an hour then they have to set inside and not get to go play. So I'm just gonna keep my kid home on inflateable day and I'll take her out somewhere & let the school system not get paid for my child being there that day. I've heard other people say that's what their doing too so maybe they will stop punishing kids for not saleing enough.
yep

i no what you mean them cookies are like 14 $ for one and 12 .for a kid to sell in this day and time with money so tight anyways .i think this is something i just don't understand to much.its hard to sell anything now days .this school cookie selling could be extra help for a kid when it gets grown if its going be a sales man or woman .but you would have to be so good that you could sell a arab sand.before you could survive..

When are we going to stop having guilt trips because every child does not have what the other child has, teaching them its okay to get things free all their life is flat wrong, i'm sorry if their parents are poor, but thats life. I have two nephews that are breeders, they are not dads just sperm donors, but when those kids went to school, they got those free supplies, then they grew up and now their kids are getting free, they wont work because they dont think they have to.

hit on one great ideal.why not divide people and have 2 classes of people in this great U.S.A.the rich .and the poor .let each class run their side like schools and their part of the land and elect their own gov. for their people two gov. in one nation.both united in case of war.that way the rich could manage for their own. while the poor would manage for their own.let all the taxes and poore revenues go to the gov they have set up.let them use it .and let the rich go to their gov. let them use it.that would make things fair for all.let each class make their own laws .while the high gov. in washington make sure the laws are applied by.then the problem of the rich thinking that the poor are breaking them. and the poor thinking that the rich are squandering and cheating them out their fair share of taxes.the poor could elect their leaders .the rich theirs .with one high gov. that both rich and poor could vote for .but let each gov. the rich the poor have and manage their elections in the manner they choose .let the poor vote come in .let the rich vote come in see who controles washington the high gov..see who sets in the presidents chair.and who sets in the chairs of the presidents leaders ..have the laws of the rich dont apply to the poor .or the laws of the poor apply to the rich this would take care of all problems.and be fair..

<quoted text>again some1 misconstrues the question, it,s not the point of being the parent,but the taxes should be there for these things(supplies)that we as parents(taxpayers)provide to our broken, cheating,school systems !I have no problem providing for my children and anyone elses who is need.But we pay for this in our taxes already.
again if the school supplied pencils and paper, kids would take and take until it was all gone in a week, or left at home, lost etc. You buy make them responsible for taking care of them. Our schools don't need to be like welfare and food stamps.(Corrupt) parents have always bought and always will. If you don't like it home school may be for you.

i think supplies should be furnished by the parents but at my elemantary school, each parent has the option to pay 15 dollars at the beginning of the year and the teacher will give the child supplies all through the year but if you choose not to pay the 15 dollars then you are responsible for providing supplies all year yourself.
