Great Back to School Challenge looks to raise money for classrooms


Teachers spend a lot of their own money on resources for their classrooms and students. I know I do. We get a Federal tax deduction but it comes no where near how much we spend.

TakePart has some interesting data about how much teachers spend: $ 3 Billion each year. That's $3,000,000,000 each year! That's crazy as far as I'm concerned. Remember, our pay isn't very high.

Budgets keep getting cut, people are out of work, so students and classrooms are in even more dire need of supplies and teachers can not afford to keep buying these things on their own.

Throughout the month of September, TakePart is partnering with for a Great Back-to-School Challenge. Every day they will be shining a light on a different classroom in need—and their excellent teachers.

Whether it’s funding for books, musical instruments, or art supplies, what all of these great projects have in common is that a little money will go a long way to help educate hundreds of students across America.
