Hi everyone. This is my first year teaching after transitioning from another line of work. I teach high school business in a public school. In planning for next year (if there is a next year at this school), I was instructed to prepare a quote for textbooks for one class that currently has no books supplied to it. I researched several books and submitted a quote to admin. In response, admin simply said "there will be no books." No explanation, no discussion. The district has plenty of money, a fact about which admin regularly brags. My question for you all is, how common is it for admin to absolutely refuse to buy textbooks and/or other resources for classes?
