Yeah, that's a fee...I agree. They could have put it in a lot nicer way for sure. I guess they don't teach tact in college anymore.

The way they did it was not cool.

However, (and this is just playing devil's advocate) if they gave the opt-out choice and/or the choice to buy your own materials, wouldn't one or more of the following situations applied:

1. Parents opt out completely, leaving their child with nothing to do while class does this task.

2. Parents opt to buy their own supplies, and end up with inferior and/or inappropriate ones for the task at hand.

3. Parents opt to buy their own and cannot afford to do so, leaving their kids in the same group as #1.

I suspect (and I may be completely wrong) that if you don't pay, you're still getting the quilt. The $6 will likely come out of either the teacher's pocket or the school's petty cash if they do that.

Like I said, the letter sucked. But, I can understand why they went about it that way.
