Can someone explain to me why poor students break my pencils and remove the erasers? I know I asked this before but can’t find the old topic just to look at. I just can’t seem to grasp why a free pencil pretty much any time they want one goes unappreciated. This gets me every time I sweep my floor. And it’s not just pencils... our school qualifies for free breakfast and lunch for all students.... they complain about the breakfast and lunch..... it’s aggravating and depressing at the same time!
