The Annual Cost-of-School Rant

The boy just started his sophomore year in sigh school. For those of you without the younguns, this is the basic, very minimal dollar outlay to get ONE Louisville public school sophomore ready for school:

$156.00 - Misc school fees. For example, Foreign Language - $15, English - $4, AP Classes - $30, etc, etc

$196.00 - Basic School Supplies

$60.00 - Partial school clothes shopping

$50.00 - First school lunch check

Total = $462

I originally wrote a long diatribe on backwards incentives and retarded fee structures, but I deleted it because it was too whiny.

I don't know about your school days, but I can recall many years when a trapper keeper, 7 folders, pens, pencils, notebook paper and a backpack were all I needed for school.

At least the kids don't have to walk to school five miles each way like they used to.
