School Supplies for Philly Students

"The Education Market Association says that virtually all teachers wind up paying out of pocket for supplies, and it’s not chump change, either. On average, most spent nearly $500 last year, and one in 10 spent $1,000 or more. All told, a total of $1.6 billion in school supply costs is shifted from parents — or, increasingly, from cash-strapped districts — onto teachers themselves."

No teacher should be spending money out of their own pockets to help their students succeed in the classroom.  This spending is especially astronomical in the Philadelphia School District.  Let's help equip these students with the necessary supplies so they can thrive in the 2017/2018 school year and beyond!
