Let's talk about inequity in the classroom that doesn't seem like inequity at first glance. I'll go first: Offering extra credit points to students for buying and bringing in school supplies isn't equitable. Comment/share your thoughts please. Or share the post.

@maggielou83 I hate this practice. The teacher is inflating a student's grade based on their ability to buy stuff for the classroom. The grade has nothing to do with learned content. It's basically inflating a grade based on privilege.

@DeeSTEM_Teach @maggielou83 Why are kids (parents) bringing supplies into the classroom? In California all consumable supplies are provided. The student loses a book. They get fined. They also get another book.

@maggielou83 Offering extra credit points for a parent coming to conferences isn't equitable.

@AbbeyReadMore When we had open house, I offered EC if the kid or their parent came. I now know how inequitable this is.

@LAMBRADLEY @maggielou83 Many school districts give students an extra grade "bump" for taking AP classes. The districts, hoping to get on the best schools list that measures schools by how many AP tests are taken, require students to pay for (~$90) and take the AP tests if they want the "bump."

@maggielou83 At home assignments that can only be completed with specific materials (crayons, pencils, scissors, glue) and not providing these materials for each child and every assignment.

@ZsaZsaGabored @maggielou83 When my kids were in kindergarten, we had a really long list given to us of supplies that they would need, like your list. But there were other supplies that were odd, like cleaning supplies and facial tissues. It was to supply the classroom since the school board didn't.
