Attention Teachers, Target Is Offering A Week-Long Special Discount On School Supplies

Lex Gabrielle 4 Jul 2019

All over the country, teachers everywhere are shelling out their hard-earned money to buy school supplies and other things for their classroom. It's no secret that teachers are underpaid for the jobs that they do, but schools across the country are also severely underfunded, which limits resources for our kids.

While many parents buy school supplies for their kids before going to school, there are those children whose families cannot afford to splurge on notebooks, pencils, and other supplies used in the classroom.

Due to this, teachers are constantly spending money to supply things to promote a positive and beneficial learning environment for all students.

However, it can become extremely expensive.

According to the National Education Association, the average teacher in a public school makes less than $60,000 a year.

Therefore, spending money out of their own pocket for supplies can be difficult.

However, many teachers forgo financial struggles and provide necessary supplies to help their students reach their full potential in the classroom.
