Chances are that teachers will generally have to spend money out of their pockets for their classroom.

It’s for the little extras not covered in the normal school budget. On a darker note, some school districts have budgeting problems and the teachers will have to pay for some of the basics like copy paper and laminating materials. A sad commentary on the state of education and it’s priority in our country.

However, there is a bit of good news in all of this. Up to $250 that you spend on your classroom is deductible on your income taxes if you itemize your deductions. You do not get the whole $250 back, but it decreases the income that you pay taxes on. Just make sure to keep your receipts.
