Suggestions for improvement

  • I would change the way they make purchases for classrooms. Many teachers buy resources from their own money. Sometimes you receive items that we already have and it's a waste of money.

What I like about the company

I work in a high-needs school. Support services are needed. Mental health issues do not get addressed

What I dislike about the company

How funding is provided and how resources are used. We pay for a lot of things out of pocket.
