The current problems with money in my district got me thinking... White Boards are a HUGE waste of money. The markers are expensive...the cleaning sprays are expensive...the boards weren't cheap either. I've got stains on my clothes that don't come out. I have mini whiteboards for students... If they wanted to save money, we could go back to using chalk. 79 cents a pack...the boards were cleaned with WATER...my hands were a little dryer, but I wash so much because of the killer swine flu, I don't think there is really any difference. There is still dust from the markers. It's all over the place! Not to mention the smell. I'm sure the chemicals can't be good and we'll all be sueing for one form of cancer or another in 20 years.
