I agree. The "range" of $4.75 to $5.00 was a little restrictive. If a person can get a deal on a book, then great! And if the book was only $2.99 originally, is that bad? Also, the parents who spent over the limit complicate the program as well. You have used books, average books, and book sets all being traded... I truly like the concept, but I wouldn't do it in my classroom for several reasons. I know you feel the parents "goofed big time", but I think it is amazing that all parents brought something in--private school or not. This wouldn't register as a goof at all with some of the parents I deal with.
