Just had an eye-opener this afternoon, Silver is now at about $18.43
oz. When my community college here in Toronto asked me to teach 9
months ago, silver was only at $14.00 oz. What a rude awakening,eh?
We have to now revise the funding to the students, no more extra
rings for them to practice on. Even to a point of requiring only
what we need, if the caster in his infinite wisdom gives me extra
rings to use. I must return them, why? It’s not the extra rings, it’s
the taxes, CZ’s and extra casting fee’s to boot…all of these little
extras could get me into a ruddy mess with my school. As I was
writing to my department-head an hour ago, I’d rather have some
students give me a sour face than to have the school and the board be
displeased with me…simple as that!
I even suggested to put the blame on the silver-traders, and not the
school. This economy has had a ripple-effect even on the applications
of students wanting to learn. In the good olde days we used to have
well over 20 students in each class, now its shrunk to below 10 on an
average. I wonder how the rest of the teaching community is dealing
with this situation.
