Letter: U.S. teachers are fed up with the status quo, for good reason

U.S. teachers fed up with the
status quo, for good reason
Thank you for printing the study on teachers spending their own money for their students (“Study: Nearly all teachers spend own money on school needs,” Page A2, May 19).
We have two teachers in our family, one teaches second grade and one teaches high school. Both are dedicated and have been teaching for over 25 years. They have always purchased supplies for their students out of their own pockets without being compensated.

The U.S. is the rare Western country that doesn’t value these dedicated people and pay them a decent wage. Why is this? I blame the U.S. Congress and the state legislatures for this discrepancy. Now we have teachers protesting and walking out because they are fed up with the status quo. Good for them and the people who support their cause.
