Ok gang. I have to ask why teachers buy stuff for their classroom that students should be bringing themselves or the school system should provide if the students are in a title school or low SOCECO environment. If students can't afford pencils and paper how does the school get away with demanding the teachers buy it? or do they demand it? Its like asking a bank teller to buy deposit slips for the customers or a McDonalds worker being told they need to buy condiments and napkins for the customers. In some states it is illegal to force employees to buy items for the company use out of their pocket so why in education? I am genuinely curious about the mentality behind this practice so please no flaming about my questions.
