Ellen heaps prizes on teacher who pays for class supplies out of her own pocket is an article in today’s Washington Post about a recent Ellen DeGeneres’ effort to give teachers gift cards.
Here’s an interesting statistic from the article:
I’ve written about this topic before at How Much Do We Teachers Spend On Our Classrooms?
That previous post includes additional studies and infographics. I think the amount cited in the article is a low ball figure (I figure I’m up to $800-$1000).
What do you think?
Ridiculous the amount of money teachers have to spend on basic school supplies. Heard the average was around 500, crazy yours is even more than that! Thanks for sharing!
