What's the point in naggin' the kids to "bring your own equipment" and warning them that we will not provide calcs for you, "you MUST bring your own, or do without". Then, when it actually comes down to the exam and the usual suspects "forget" theirs, the boss then swans off and returns with half a dozen calcs to hand out. Who thinks we should supply them with everything and who thinks they should be brought up to be independent and self-sufficient? Is anyone "in-between"? Just so you know, my school is not in a deprived area and has no "free school meals", so Parents not being able to afford a calc is not an issue here. Any comments or thoughts please?!!
