We are creeping up to the end of summer. Which means it’s back to school time across the country.

This week, we’ve been talking with parents about what they buy for their kids’ classrooms. Marketplace’s Adriene Hill joins the show to discuss how more and more parents are expected to chip in for supplies in the classroom.

 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
