Expensive School Supplies

Sep 8, 2008

School supply lists for parents are getting longer and more expensive. Students in elementary school in Baltimore average $36.91 per child. In middle school the cost per child is about $52.93. The cost for high school students is much higher because they use electronic equipment.

Free public education isn’t really free.
