Contrary to the belief that public education is free, schools across the nation are charging students fees for everything from basic courses like English and science, to electives like band and even for after-school sports.
The Week magazine goes by the numbers with a brief guide highlighting the trend:
Registration fee for students in the Community Unit School District 200 in Wheaton, Ill.
Extracurricular activities fee for students who play football at Hamilton-Wenham High Regional High School in South Hamilton, Mass.
Cost of one year of public education for the Dombi family’s four children in Medina, Ohio. The cost includes fees for basic courses like Spanish I and Earth science, extracurricular activities like cross-country and track, and the cost of graded electives, like band.
