The Conversation: Money and education
Share Now on:
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.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
