More Money For Teachers To Buy Classroom Supplies

More money for teachers to buy supplies for their classroom. That's what today's announcment from Texas Governor Rick Perry will mean. An additional 3 million dollars will be added to the state's Teacher Reimbursment Fund.

Governor Perry hopes this will right a current wrong saying, teachers "should not have to bear the cost of items that are necessary to do their jobs." Local districts will be allowed to apply for the grants beginning September first.
