What’s up with NBC, the Today show’s ridiculous reporting about…

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:03 am by whatsupwiththat

back to school lists and how out of hand they have gotten.  Instead of reporting (in awe like wonder) about why coffee filters or ice cube trays might be on the back to school lists, they present only the parents’ side of how much all this costs.  I can sympathize that back to school bills can add up and be overwhelming, but try running an effective, hands on classroom without taking a major hit to your own wallet as the teacher.  I am sure the filters and ice cube trays play some part in the classroom and will be used by the students, not for the teachers’ coffee and cold drinks, but why not ask a teacher or two and present a balanced story NBC?  And parents, wondering how some of the items you are being asked to purchase will be used or are useful in the classroom, send the teacher an email and ask!

PSA of the day ~ News stories need to present both sides.
