“They’re going to Target and Walmart and Kmart,” Engel said, “and they’re shopping those pencil sharpeners and additional cover paper and construction paper and things we only need to learn a kids simple subjects in school.”
Engel pronounced it would be a comparatively tiny cost to a state to assistance teachers.
“This provides most indispensable assistance to a teachers, and by them, to a kids,” she said.
