8AM Couch Chat: Panhandling For School Supplies

A teacher is forced to pan handle on the side of the road for school supplies. Teresa Danks is a third grade teacher in Oklahoma. She says she spends about three grand on school supplies every year which is hard on her $35k salary.

That’s the same number teachers here in North Carolina start with. The state ranks 35th in the nation for teacher pay… what else can the state do to help out teachers? Should North Carolina bring back the tax free weekend?
