AUSTIN (KXAN) — As schools try to figure out how to balance their budget, teachers are dipping into their own pockets to make sure their classrooms have all the tools necessary to enrich young minds.
To lessen the pain on a teacher’s pocketbook, Target is offering teachers across the country a 15 percent discount on select classroom supplies from July 15-21.
Teachers just need to visit Target.com/teacherprep get a coupon code starting July 15.
In Texas, a bill introduced last year would have given teachers up to $600 back for classroom supplies and other school-related purchases they made out of their own pocket. The bill never became law and ended up getting left behind in committee.
