How Teachers Can Access Classroom School Supplies at No Cost
It’s a sad reality. Even though the education of our K-12 students is highly valued in most countries worldwide, the education system is vastly underfunded. According to the USA Department of Education, teachers in the United States are out-of-pocket $478 each year. That’s $2 Billion of personal money spent on school supplies.
About 44 percent of teachers spend $250 or less, while 36 percent spend from $251 to $500 per year. The New York times reports that 94 percent of teachers purchase classroom supplies without reimbursement. The bottom line is that teachers are paying too much of their own money for school supplies.
Fortunately, there is a new program that has been created to give teachers and administrators of schools access to supplies without cost to them. This program is also available for PTA’s, childcare centers, Head Start Programs, after-school programs, as well as boys and girls clubs.
It’s called Wishing Well™ and is the simple, easy way for all educators to request vital school supplies and receive them quickly. You simply sign up to ‘Make a Wish’ List, which is basically creating a campaign listing your needs. Wish lists can be created by individual teachers or school administrators who want to run a school-wide campaign for the classroom supplies.
In turn, teachers, schools and any group working with kids in need of school supplies will be able to connect with those who are ready to offer support by purchasing and donating items. School supplies are purchased online within the Wishing Well™ platform and shipped directly to the educators.
