Dad Writes Another Check: School Expenses

Category: Because I Said So

school expenses

While I think this comic is funny, it also really irritates me. I write more and more checks for school expenses and get more requests to raise money for schools.  Why do we have to pay for the school expenses and EVERY extra-curricular activity that USED TO BE available at our schools? I did Drivers Ed in high school. Now, we pay for it!

Do take advantage of VoogDesign’s special caricature offer in our ad section (scroll down a bit on the right)!

    I don’t understand it, either. My son’s high school wants nearly $1500 for him to be on the La Crosse team.  Plus,we are expected to fund raise that much again.  It’s insane!

      We have a BROKEN educational system yet we spend more than EVER per child! Too much union involvement, IMO!

        I agree.  We spend tons of money on bureaucracy that is unnecessary. Such a waste!  Not nearly enough of the money spent on “education” makes it to the classrooms.

          It’s so sad and our kids suffer due to the school bureaucracies and teacher’s unions – Chicago being a perfect example of their abuse!

    Tragically funny!  If I were raised today as I was in the 70s/80s, my immigrant parents would not have been able to afford to send me to public school!

      It really is sad, isn’t it?
