Teachers and parents should not be asked to provide basic supplies like hand soap and paper towels! Politicians in Raleigh continue to cut corporate taxes, while the rest of us are stuck filling in the funding gaps in our public schools. The fact is, schools have less than half of the money they had 10 years ago for classroom supplies, this is a travesty.
We want to hear your story.
- Are you a teacher who has spent personal money on supplies for your classroom?
- Are you a parent who has filled in the gap at your child's school?
- Have you volunteered to raise funds for these expenses?
Lawmakers continue to force communities and teachers to buy basic supplies. In low income areas many classrooms just go without. This continued drop in funding is disgraceful and has to change. Lawmakers owe us some answers. We must tell the NCGA that we DEMAND school funding be increased to acceptable levels. Your stories will help.
