Binders, pencils, bleach and trash bags

Reason #593 why I’ll probably home school my children: outrageous school supply lists. It’s one thing to save teachers from buying this stuff, it’s another thing to support bloated school systems that have been mishandling their funds for years. Since experience shows the highest dollar amount spent per student is in the worst school systems (including Washington, D.C.), I wonder when we’ll actually start enforcing accountability within public school systems, rather than patching systemic problems.

    I was looking at those lists at WalMart – I was appalled! Why do kids need half of that stuff?
