Teachers get freebies, discounts this week — but not more pay

As school districts across the nation continue to debate pay and benefits for teachers, some businesses want to show educators a little love.

Teacher Appreciation Week kicks off Monday, but the biggest day for educators is Tuesday, Teacher Appreciation Day.
