Custom ear plugs for $26.00? What is wrong with the 59 cent variety that rest of us buy at Walgreens? Did the school district pay for these?

The plugs purchased at drug stores are not customized for the individual, even the ones that are foam and mold to your ear are not customized. Because of that, noise reduction is minimal at best. And per the news report from KSTP a few weeks back, no the school did not pay for them. It was optional and the student's paid the cost, which is significantly less than normal.
