Our English Department enjoys a "Grading Sub," a substitute teacher who rotates about the English classes so that teachers can have time to grade the written work. It allows the writing program to thrive, for without the sub there would, logically, be fewer assignments and therefore a lesser writing program. The position is funded by our very gracious Foundation.
But I was told, at one point, that the Foundation was more interested in funding technology than they were people. So what do you do when you need a sub, but you can only use the funds for technology?
I think I have the answer.
