Fees for Technology: Are You Willing to Pay?
May 26, 2011 § Leave a comment
With budget cuts rising among public schools, some institutions are looking to charge parents for supplemental features, such as technology. The Wall Street Journal published a piece that noted on the rising cost for public school families.
Public schools across the country, struggling with cuts in state funding, rising personnel costs and lower tax revenues, are shifting costs to students and their parents by imposing or boosting fees for everything from enrolling in honors English to riding the bus.
At high schools in several states, it can cost more than $200 just to walk in the door, thanks to registration fees, technology fees and unspecified “instructional fees.”
Do you think parents should take care of technology costs?
