Do you think teachers should get a tax credit for buying classroom supplies?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 23, 2007
“Yes. They are burdened enough as it is with all of the other expenses they have to pay. They already don’t make enough money.”
“Yes, just like any other business expense. If they have to spend that money for supplies, then they really aren’t making it in the first place.”
“I think those teachers are deserving of a better salary, but they shouldn’t have to spend any of their money on supplies for their classrooms. The schools should get enough funding to give them all of the supplies they need.”
“I think they should if the money is going toward something they are only going to be using for teaching purposes. There should be a limit though. I can’t see anyone spending more than $1,000 a year.”
