Sad state of education funding

One high school calculus teacher in California has resorted to selling advertising on his exams due to lack of money to print/copy them.

  1. I read about that or saw it on the news. It’s odd but I think it’s a good idea. In my neck of the woods, they’re always saying no to school levies and generally anything to help schools keep up. Stupid people love company, ya know.
