    NC schools’ needs strain budgets for parents, teachers

    Jasmine Lauer, an English teacher at Sanderson High School, says she spends up to $200 of her own money on school supplies each semester. If North Carolina still had an annual tax-free weekend, Lauer could keep about $27 of that. It might not sound like much, but Lauer said every dollar adds up, especially as schools depend more on teachers and parents to buy tissues, dry-erase markers and glue sticks.

    Teacher out-of-pocket spending remains high

    Agile Education Marketing and SheerID partnered again for a third-annual Teacher Spending Survey. Compiled from the responses of more than 500 PreK-12 teachers across the U.S., the 2016 survey gives an insightful look into teacher spending habits. The survey revealed that teachers spent an average of $487 out-of-pocket to purchase items for their classrooms during the 2015 – 2016 school year — only a slight $3 decrease since last year. The number of teachers who spent $200 or more increased 6% over the previous year to 77%. A majority of the money teachers spent went toward purchasing classroom supplies and instructional materials.

    Best Back-to-School Teacher Discounts — and Where to Find Them

    Summer is coming to a close, meaning it’s almost time for teachers to return to the classroom. Many teachers aren’t given a hefty budget to cover the cost of school supplies, so they’re forced to use their own funds to make up the difference. For the 2015-2016 school year, teachers spent an average of $487 of their own money stocking their classrooms, according to a survey conducted by SheerID and Agile Education Marketing. This can become a huge financial burden even when items are purchased during a teacher sale. Being a good teacher can cost a lot of money, so many retailers offer special discounts for teachers to help cover extra expenses.
