(Also, you throw a marker pen at a recalcitrant student - and you find you're before the beak on an assault charge!)
edit* By which I mean, 1 marker pen costs five times as much as A PACKET of chalk and lasts one tenth of the time of ONE PIECE of chalk!
Yup, we had them when I was teaching: "dry erase boards"._________________________
