Educators plan to protest the GOP plan because it removes the tax deduction for teachers who buy school supplies for their classrooms.
The Republican tax plan would force grad students to pay income tax on that tuition. He sees only the stipend he is paid as a graduate assistant for a couple of 4000-level courses.

Weck wished that the University had been more proactive.
