Teachers spend $600 a year of their own money on classroom supplies.

91% of teachers purchase school supplies for their students. Unfortunately, this has become the norm.

That’s because most states are providing less support for K-12 schools than ever before. And over half of public school students are low-income.

This leaves a big resource gap in many classrooms. Kids just aren’t getting the materials they need to learn.

Currently, this gap is being filled by teachers themselves, with 60% of all classroom supplies being purchased by teachers out of their own pockets.
