... Our school requires 8 hours of volunteer work per month per family, and your tuition is billed and extra $80 a month if those hours are not in by the end of the month.

Rhonwyn asks: What kind of school do your children attend? I have been asking about parents getting credit for volunteer hours with little luck. We are at a Waldorf school and they want all volunteering to be freely given. It is a nice sentiment but in many classes it ends up being the same families over and over again who volunteer and people get burnt out. I would like to see them get a credit toward tuition or have it equate to fundraising dollars or something. What do you think about the billing for not having 8 hours?
