Out of Pocket: What Teachers Across the Country Spend on Supplies
Joanna Petrone

It seems that this situation is happening around the world. It’s upsetting that teachers buy supplies for students as a normal thing because they know that they can’t have lessons without basic materials. It should never be a norm. Just imagine that chef in some restorant has to buy vegetables from his own pocket because he can’t cook a meal without it and restorant just dosn’t have money for vegetables. Sounds apsourd, right, but when it comes to teachers it’s suddenly normal thing to do.
