Think School Supplies Are Expensive?


The cost to raise a child to age 18 now approaches $250,000!!

And that doesn't include funding for college.

Perhaps of interest... from SF, but has data, and the conclusions and discussion probably apply here too.

To 8:24AM ~~ I am not surprised by that at all! In fact, whenever they start talk about student attendance, I immediately wonder about teacher absences. When a sub is in the classroom, little learning is happening.

To 12:01PM ~~ Good grief! The continued militarization of the PD's is becoming very scary! Assault weapons do not belong in schools.
