Creative Funding.

I know that schools today are in a cash crunch. Two of my friends, Jeff and Rich, could tell you first hand about that. A teacher in Idaho came up with a creative way to get paper to print tests and other things on. He got a Pizza shop to pay for the paper. The bottom of the paper is an ad for the place. Is this outrageous and should be banned? I am sure there will be those voicing their opinions that there is no place for this in schools. I don't see anything wrong with it. A lot of schools collect money from Coke or Pepsi for allowing their vending machines into the schools. They also pay for a lot of scoreboards. Kids are inundated with ads all day long. As long as they don't do like Jeff Spicoli and order one during class there shouldn't be a problem.Travis was right. The Taj Mahal is an example of Islamic architecture, not Gothic.

Today's question is Grade 3/World Geography.

The Equator intersects what other imaginary line at zero degrees latitude, zero degrees longitude?
I missed this one. 58-14.

In high school me and two of my friends actually did that pizza trick in our biology class.

Our PTO raises about $15K each year for things like this that our school budget does not cover. A "special" note taking paper was one of those things.

Times are tough. Free public education has a price these days.
