Tax Cuts Force Teachers to Crowdfund

Arizonans can thank their Republican legislature for subjecting their schools to a larger percent-change cut in education funding from 2008 to 2014 than any other state.

So, teachers there are turning to crowdfunding to replace supplies, books and other educational essentials (and that’s not when the teachers are paying out of their own pockets since we know that they are over paid, right? Actually, Arizona teachers are among the worst paid).

So while the public gets a tax cut, a study shows that ” decreases in education spending have long-term negative impacts on state economies.”

So, check out and help a kid.
