AZ-Parents, Teachers Struggle to Cover Cost of School Supplies

[T]his year in Arizona, as students return to school after a year that ended in a historic educator walkout, the issue of school supplies has gotten seriously political.

Districts say the state isn’t providing enough money for them to cover the cost of things like paper, Kleenex and dry-erase markers.

Teachers say they aren’t being paid enough to make up for the hundreds of dollars they spend out of their own pocket on classroom supplies.

And some parents are frustrated that they’re being asked to provide more and more supplies each year to cover the gap beyond just their child’s needs.
