Scandalous gifts?

I’m waiting to hear buzz about the “gift cap” that was the focus of so many web chats last year at this time.

The issue: districts that cap the amount of money a family can spend on teacher gifts during the school year. Actually, ethics laws in some places already include teachers and school administrators. In other areas, the gift policy is outlined in the school handbook.

Gift caps are intended to remove the potential for student favoritism and level the playing field, but some parents chafe at limits on ways they can express appreciation to the people who spend all day with their child.
