Why do schools send so many emails? They don’t have to
Back-to-school means back to checking emails, texts, apps and social-media pages for notes from teachers. What if schools agreed on one channel for communications?
My kids head back to the classroom in about two weeks. So far I’ve received nine emails, five text messages and two newsletters from their schools, some of which directed me to other sites to fill out forms. I’ve received notifications of numerous Facebook posts but haven’t had the bandwidth to look at them.
