Paper waste in Horry County Schools

Recently, during the last week of school I had all my children bringing home all their belongings from throughout the year. What I cannot understand with the economy being how it is, with all we try to teach our children about recycling, and all the “going green” campaigning: Why is it that the schools and teachers are all year long having the children glue papers on top of papers?

I have four children in four grades and all of them had to have numerous black composition books only to glue ditto sheets into them. What is wrong with a hole punch and a binder? What a waste of money, and what are we teaching our kids? No wonder Horry County cries about cutbacks and money.
