Teachers' spending out of pocket for classroom supplies increased by more than 23%.
From AdoptAClassroom.org: In April 2018, AdoptAClassroom.org invited all teachers registered on their website to complete a survey about their spending on classroom supplies. More than 4,400 teachers responded to the survey. The information they provided paints a picture of an increasing need to help teachers purchase classroom supplies. Teacher spending out of pocket for classroom supplies has increased by more than 23% since 2015. Today, the average out-of-pocket spending can be up to $740 per year! Read the Full Report.
Here at Learning Without Tears, we love teachers and are constantly looking for ways to make their jobs easier. We are excited to have found a partner to help us, Adopt A Classroom!
As we continue our celebration around National Handwriting Day, and to help alleviate this burden on our teachers, Learning Without Tears is partnering with AdoptAClassroom.org to make our products accessible at a reduced cost. Teachers can now purchase our award-winning student editions, teacher’s guides, and manipulatives in the AdoptAClassroom.org Store. In addition, Learning Without Tears will make a corresponding donation with each purchase.
