Happy Back to School!

I wonder about this every time I go into a grocery store or office supply store etc that is offering to give money or credit to schools or teachers in proportion to your own purchase. What happened to the time when school taxes paid for most of the supplies needed in a classroom? Granted, teachers have often pitched back part of their own salaries to pay for things in the classroom, but when I started reading about students needing to supply paper towels or soap....

what to do about this sad state of affairs? Remember this when voting! Participate in your local school board activities, even by attending meetings. Vote for school budgets (or against them). Consider the track records of your state and federal representatives. Ask for particulars about HOW the whole "no child left behind" thing is supposed to work. Vote accordingly.
