Excuse me while I rant & rave a little.
A few days ago I saw a story on a local TV channel that made me so mad!
A large school district outside Oklahoma City is charging teachers a fee for using the following items.
I can understand a school system trying to save money, but this is outrageous.
As a retired teacher I can't imagine charging teachers for using a fan or lamp in their classroom. I had a desk lamp & several others around the room to add a little coziness.
I had to have a fan, especially during the hot months. Not to mention that the thermostats were controlled by a computer. The AC & heater would shut off about 15 minutes before school was dismissed. I can't imagine working after school with no fan! I could handle the lack of no heat because I could put on a jacket or sweater.
Okay, bear with me, I'm almost finished.
Teacher's spend so much of their own money to buy things for their classroom, I know I did.
I can't understand why they're charging teachers who are trying to make their classroom a comfortable place for learning.
I'm finished now.
What's your opinion?
