Are parents being asked to donate too much money and time to schools?

Since we attend a private Christian school we pay tuition to attend. We have fundraisers benefiting the school and the scholarship fund. In addition each family is required to volunteer a MINIMUM of 10 hours per school year in some capasity.

At this point, once I've reached my donation limit, any extra funds will go for tutoring and extracurriculars that benefit my son directly instead of the non participating and unsupportive families. I only have so much too!

As in most things, about 25% of the parents do the donating and give the time. I am in that 25%. It's frustrating that so many parents expect a free ride for their kids because of being in public school.

Yes I am a student and every time my school mails a donation ticket the little boxes that you check say over$50,00 dollars can be donated but, my parents only send a $110 every time.

In South Carolina, we operate on the premise of less taxes but give me more services. That is how we elect our officials. Trust your school, ask questions, and then decide as best for you and your child.

we are happy to donate to the schoo, but the district does not make it simple. starting a non profit is expensive. i wish the district would have an unbrella 501 (c)3 for all schools and would train parents in grant writing.

I have a problem with some of the fundraisers but I don't think that parents can donate enough time. It's so so so important to our schools and kids that we involve ourselves.

No, in fact the kids would benefit from greater involvement from parents. The fundraisers are a joke, who can afford those prices?"
