And Would You Mind Bringing A Desk?


This story, making the rounds on Twitter, is indeed remarkable:

When Emily Cooper headed off to first grade in Moody, Ala., last week, she was prepared with all the stuff on her elementary school’s must-bring list: two double rolls of paper towels, three packages of Clorox wipes, three boxes of baby wipes, two boxes of garbage bags, liquid soap, Kleenex and Ziplocs.

“The first time I saw it, my mouth hit the floor,” Emily’s mother, Kristin Cooper, said of the list, which also included perennials like glue sticks, scissors and crayons.

As Natasha Chart says, “Because nothing says ‘superpower’ like when your public schools can’t afford toilet paper.” And, alas, there’s plenty more of this kind of news.
