Poll Result

Recently Rochester parents have been known to grumble about the expense of sending youngsters to school. One parent reports having to spend $50 to $60 on supplies for each of two children, who are in fifth and sixth grade. This is in addition to book rental that weighed in at $110 and $148 respectively. Is this too much? Please check the response that reflects your view.

1. – Yes, it is too much. Public education shouldn’t cost extra. We already pay a whole boatload of taxes.

  32%
2. – I don’t mind a little extra expense, but these costs are excessive.

  1%
3. – No opinion.

  2%
4. – I would happily pay twice as much.

  22%
5. – No, it is not too much. People who expect something for nothing should get real.
