High School freshman year is a blizzard of handouts, worksheets, and single pages of notes

High School freshman year is a blizzard of handouts, worksheets, and single pages of notes. None of which are dated. None of which use any system of ordering (e.g., "handout 21 of 97"). I am appalled that my children's teachers can not provide a comprehensive set of materials at the beginning of the year. (What have they been doing all Summer?) When there is no "text book" there are few means for the child to advance or review. When the "text book" is so fractured how can the child know what is missing? How can a parent help in such chaos? This really is no way to provide an education.
