Students not Responsible for the laptop?

Back in the day when I went to school, we were responsible for the textbooks. The textbooks were used, and numbered. At the start of the school year, the teachers would hand out textbooks that were inspected on the spot. Any abnormal defect was noted at the time.

At the end of the school year, when handing in the textbooks, they were inspected again. If there was abnormal wear or anything that wasn't noted when the textbook was given to you at the start of the school year, you was responsible for the cost.

I realize laptops are expensive, so are textbooks. But are students charged for lost or damaged laptops like we were charged for abused textbooks?

I don't know why you think students are responsible for textbooks today... As far as I know every textbook issued is inspected at the end of the year today...

Probably because it's been a long time since I, or any of my family, have been in school. That's why I started off with a statement such as "back in the day when I went to school".

That makes no sense, unless the school doesn't let students take home textbooks (studyhall based school).

I forgot to put are NOT responsible... They are completely responsible for them... Some classes hand out a book for home and one for in class / to carry around. Many don't even hand out books anymore and have moved to a teacher generated page or two with information, problems and binder holes. This is the preferred method of many math teachers since they can go as fast / slow as they need to make sure the information is taught.

Well, I'm not here to please you. Next time, please don't assume. I asked a question and made a statement. Frankly, it's my choice to make it sound anyway I wish.

Thank-you.

It kind of sounds like you're being an asshole because you know you were wrong... But YOU'RE WELCOME.

Have a nice day!

Wrong about what? It kind of sounds like you're young and a bit arrogant by trying to dictate how one types a message, then bypassing the message with your own assumption.

I asked a question and made a statement.

Exactly where was I wrong by asking a question as to if students were responsible for the laptops? You didn't provide any such answer that. You answered a question that you, yourself, assumed.

Next time, please learn to read.
