I've already spent over $700 of my own money on my supplies for my students this year. Did I mention that I am a teacher?

As a teacher, I will spend an average of $2,000 easily by the end of the school year. See the posters in your child's classroom - purchased by the teacher. See the classroom library, reading and math activities - purchased by the teacher. But really, I don't mind because I want the very best for my students!

It would have been $50-$100, but my son's school has uniforms. So I ended up spending around $200.

I live in Montgomery County where the school budgets eat a significant amount of the total taxes collected. My question is, where the hell are my tax dollars going if teachers are buying supplies? I might add, I have NO children. If my taxes cant cover supplies I want a refund.
