Do you buy resources for lessons that the teacher has planned?

    I would have bought a packet of cress for 50p and planted them on kitchen roll! Then I would have left a note to say there were no resources in school so I used what I had at home.
    I think it's a bit cheeky leaving such a lesson and not leaving the stuff you need to teach it. They really shouldn't expect you to buy it, Like 1ag said above, put your receipt into the office and get it back.

    And as long as teachers do that, schools will never provide proper resources. Would you expect nurses and doctors to provide their own resources if the surgeries and hospitals ran out of supplies?
    To the OP: the school is being really cheeky. I agree with those who advise presenting your receipt and claiming the money back.
