Maybe.  We don't know why they are asking for a volunteer instead of paying.  Most likely it's because school budget categories are not fungible - you can't always just take money from one pot and put it in another.

If they don't have a photography club, then they reap the rewards of that choice.

Wow, so harsh.  You must have a grudge against schools.

And who is "they"?  The students? The teachers? The administration?  The ones who are most impacted are the ones who have the least control.

170 head shots over a full work day sounds like a job not a volunteer slot.

Some people volunteer that much time out of a sense of community.  Or to make things easier for those they know and care for.  Perhaps you feel this way because you cannot relate it yourself -- if your sister/brother/in-law/friend asked you for such help, you would automatically say no because it's too much work?   Sounds pretty cold to me.
