USC’s Masters of Arts in Teaching Campaign
Every year teachers spend over $1.6 billion of their own money for school supplies. This is a disturbing new trend, where districts are paying for teachers, but not for the books and supplies needed to teach. My school is Title 1 and I haven't had a budget to speak up for four out of six years. I have to do a lot of recycling and applying for grants to get my students the materials and tools they need for a decent art program. 'The Classroom Project is a campaign which gives a voice to educators everywhere that are spending money out of pocket for their classrooms. Now is the time for communities to show their support for teachers while raising awareness about the need for additional supplies in the classroom.'
