I've never had a preference for my students, but now I'm moving to a public school and I was thinking there might be a school wide preference for one or the other and I should comply. The reason I ask is that I wanted to stock up on 15 cent comp books at Wal-Mart (I'm moving to a poor school and need some extras in case students can't buy one). I bought college rule then thought maybe I should've bought wide rule for 10th grade. I know they prefer wide rule if I say to write one page, etc. but these are going to be for notes, etc. so that won't matter.
