Rising back-to-school lists, costs give families a lesson in economics
American families will spend just over $100 each on school supplies alone in their back-to-school shopping this year, a 12 percent increase from last year, according to a recent report from the National Retail Federation.
Back-to-school shopping brings its own lessons in math and economics for parents and students, according to data from the National Retail Federation, which surveyed a variety of spending areas for college students (blue bars) and K-12 students (orange bars).
