Stacie Posted January 20, 2011 Share Posted January 20, 2011 (edited) My sil teaches at a small private school. It's a nice school from what I understand, and is part of a large church. She visited us right before school started and asked if she could look at my curriculum. We spent some time looking over all the things I use and things I don't. She liked a few things and asked if she could bring them to show her principal to see if she could purchase them for her class. Teachers are not given a particular curriculum to follow, and since there is only one or two classes per grade, the teacher usually just has a budget for her classroom curriculum purchases. She had spent her budget and needed approval for purchases for one more subject. I was told her principal likely wouldn't approve the extra without actually seeing the book in person. Of course I let her borrow the books to show. I've been asking for the books back and still haven't received them. I finally decided she'd lost them and wouldn't admit it. Last weekend we visited and asked one more time for the books. She walked to her home office to get them and I followed. She pulled the books off a stack of papers. The papers were multiple photocopies of the workbook, and a binder underneath had the name of the teacher text hand written on the spine. I asked her about it and she claimed she didn't get approval to buy the workbooks for her classroom, so she had to "make do." :001_huh: The books are from a large publishing company who mainly produces for schools. It's not a homeschool focused curriculum. She said she's going to factor this into her budget for next year since she really likes the curriculum. Part of me wants to notify the publisher, but part of me says that these kids would not be learning this if I did. And the publisher will get a sale on this next year. I know it's wrong but for the sake of the kids' education should I just let it go? Edited January 20, 2011 by Stacie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
