I'm voting Nay on this because we need to do more for the education system in this country. Giving a $250 tax deductions to teachers is not going to be enough. That tax deduction is like putting a band aid on a cut arty because it's going to be enough. We need to have schools make sure that in their yearly budget that there is a line for school supplies just like how they have funds for new technology for the classroom there needs to be a line for basic school supplies; instead of teachers being forced to spend their own money. We are also at a point where the federal government should be intervening at the state and local levels to fix the mess that have become of our nation's education system. Until this happens our country education level will slip even further down the list of our peers around the world.
