Homeschooling Tools Of The Trade
Can someone explain to me why a *rolling dry erase board*, like the one above, costs from $700-$1,000?
For crying out loud, computers cost less than that now!
It must be because the natural buyers, government-subsidized schools and large corporations, are not price sensitive, I guess.
I'm in search of a big one for my homeschooling lessons. It looks like my best bet will probably be some *liquidating* business on craigslist.
Right now, I do have a smallish one that I suspend in my kitchen. It really helps my son to be staring at definitions, words, equations, and whatnot while he's eating breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just playing there with his Knex.
In my ideal educational setting, I'd surround learners with pertinent information at all times. Forget the *sports section* - how about posting the trigonometric identities above the urinal?
