    have a bunch of folks from the IRS and the state level taxation agency carry those desks in?

    The presence of desks in a classroom has a lot more to do with funding, and a lot less to do with military action.

    Or did I miss a war where we were invaded by folks who wanted to take our desks away?. we have so many wars these days that I guess I could have missed one...

    Apparently they hate us for our furniture, and not our freedoms...

    •  Right. A bloated "defense" budget, (0+ / 0-)

      including equipment that the military doesn't even want, has a lot more to do with lack of funding for schools. We can be grateful to our service men and women without painting them as being responsible for schools having desks, just as we cannot blame them directly for bloated defense budgets.

      I don't remember not having desks, but I do remember sitting at ones that should have been tossed years ago. I remember one classroom in which the desks had inkwells.
