    Next she’ll give you the honorable task of clearing out the asbestos.

    Are chalkboards still used these days? No need to clap clean erasers when it comes to marker boards.

    Actually, in some schools they unbelievably are still in use. I volunteer for Destination Imagination yearly and get to see various classrooms. The vast majority are whiteboards, so no need for chalk there since they require dry erase markers. But I have seen a handful of classrooms over the last twenty years that actually still use blackboards (wonder why they didn’t call them chalkboards as some of the classrooms I’ve been in, both when I was in school and since, have had green blackboards)

    The dreaded chalk lung claims another victim.

    I also remember being the chosen one to clean the chalk erasers…But there was no one to see the honor…being it was after school…when I got home I told everyone and they just didn’t seem as thrilled…oh well…I still think it was one of my most shining moments…ya just gotta be there and be a kid again to know….

    In my parents’ day (1930s), apparently being sent out to clap erasers was more of a punishment…maybe a time-out. For me in the 60s, it was a privilege. We were sent out either alone or in pairs at recess time. The school was red-brick and if the erasers were particularly dusty, some students would make a design on the wall with the chalk dust.

    The old felt erasers were a pain because they dirtied the board more than they cleaned it. The best were the foam-rubber ones that had a kind of chamois leather on one side. That really cleaned up the board and made it a pleasure to write on, but the teacher usually reserved that one for her own use.
