I was so excited to learn that the new maths teacher at my school decided to order old fashioned slates for all her students. Another maths teacher had done so, but she had ordered the new fangled and toxic plastic slates that require plastic white board markers. But this teacher went out searching for the real thing and today they arrived. The students were so excited about them! The only problem: they came individually wrapped in plastic. So unnecessary! But here is the link to Monex, the company that makes these and other sustainable school supplies in India.
