No, Iím sorry. Itís not the same thing. I provide for my child and budget accordingly to meet his needs. It is much more financially feasible for me to get the supplies for my ONE child than to expect his teacher to get the supplies for her TWENTY-ONE children. Also at least in my case, it would be and not the school supplying. It would come out of my wallet. Not okay. That project that would have cost the parent $10-20, less if they keep supplies around the house (separate vent, but crayons, markers, scissors, glue should be in every childís home not just electronic devices), will cost me $200-$400 if I am to supply every student. Letís say $150 if I can scrounge up some of the supplies from what we have around the classroom and from other teachers. So yes, I scoff at buying supplies for students, and no it is not the same thing.
