As August winds down, it’s time to go back to school. The United States spends $12,296 per public school student, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. That money helps take care of school operations and maintains school property.

For this week’s conversation, we want to know about how you spend on education. Are you splurging on school stuff for your kids? Or maybe you’re still paying off the degree you completed years ago? What have you learned?

Come tell us your stories about money and education.
