Keep the teacher’s tax deduction in our federal taxes

Imagine you are at work and realize that you are in need of something very important to your success at this job.  You go through the proper channels to acquire this item but at every turn are told that this essential item is not truly essential to the job.  Some might say, well just get it yourself and move on.  Well imagine again that this happens with EVERY item that you need.  This is the life of some teachers in this country especially in the most needy of districts.

These districts are also the ones with the highest achievement gap.  Parents can only provide so much for their children.  For some it is a matter of buying clothing or buying the books, notebooks, pencils, markers etc.  Clothing is a bit more important.  Imagine even further that the situation is choosing between clothing and housing.  School supplies do not even enter into their consciousness.

Teachers provide for these students because we set our students up to succeed in life.  The kids are not the ones that have put their families into these situations.  They are just collateral damage.  The $250 that teachers can get back via taxes yearly only chips away at the mountain we spend out of our own pockets.  Every little bit back helps us to provide the best possible education for the future of our country.  By doing away with this help, it impacts those who are the most vulnerable in our country, the children.

Please help to make sure that our future has an actual future.
