Teacher Funded Classrooms

All over the United States, schools are funded by the government, but it’s nowhere near enough. Teachers must take countless amounts of money out of their paychecks to provide students with a proper learning environment. The structure in the first picture is made out of materials a teacher had to buy in order to do an egg drop lab. Sadly, his money went to waste because the egg inside the structure and the structure itself broke along with many others like it. Also, the second picture shows a student using even more materials a teacher had to buy to do another different physics lab.
