Silver State Schools Credit Union : Classroom Supply Loan
This is just so freaking sad, I can't believe that it is real.
Teachers needing to take out loans to buy supplies for their classrooms.
Yea, those spoiled, coddled teachers the right wing rails against, those evil selfish teachers looking out only for their own interests and their entitlements.
Needing loans to buy supplies for their pupils because the school system has broken down.
Too many unfunded mandates by legislators, driving up school costs.
People voting against school levies because: they're living hand to mouth and just can't spare the extra $100 a year in taxes; or they've bought into the idea that schools are evil; or they're unable to reconcile their own confusion between knowing that education is important but that they school system needs evenhanded adjustments.
School systems paying huge salaries and benefits to admin and staff instead of teachers and supplies.
