Eh, I just assumed it was ‘cause my schools were fifty years old. XD
I’d bet they do. They’re relatively cheap, reliable, and as far as I know, American public schools aren’t going to move away from wooden #2 pencils anytime soon – probably a combination of ‘inertia’, standardization, and they’re specified as the ONLY writing tool to use on many test forms, e.g. ScanTrons, which STILL say “Use No. 2 Pencil ONLY” on them – necessitating sharpeners.
Same. I typically use Pentel GraphGear 500s, or the “classic engineer” P200 Series models, 0.3- to 0.9-mm, depending on what I’m doing. But I always prefer soft, dark lead, usually 2B.
