I am a teacher. Can I claim a tax deduction for newspapers that I purchase to use in the classroom?

If the main reason for the purchase of the newspapers is for their use in the course of teaching and that use can be clearly demonstrated, then the work-related portion of the cost may be tax deductible.  See Taxation Ruling 95/14 paragraph 168.
I hope this helps :-)
