“Dear PoPville,

My daughter is a kindergartener at a DC public school. My husband and I went in to drop off snacks for the class, and the teacher asked if we could do her a favor. She said they don’t have enough toilet paper or paper towels. She said that they never have enough. (I guess this shouldn’t have surprised me since the last couple times my daughter needed to use the bathroom when I picked her up, there was no toilet paper to be found.)

That seems terrible to me. DC has so much money and brings in so much tax revenue. But our schools aren’t provided with the basic resources they need? Like our kids literally don’t have the toilet paper they need? Are other schools having this problem too?”
