Inflation limiting school supplies in classrooms
SALT LAKE CITY — Inflation is leaving its mark on teachers as they try and get enough supplies for their classrooms.
Deseret Mutual Benefit Administrator or DMBA Certified Financial Planner Shane Stewart, said at least two main expenses are driving the headache in being able to afford supplies.
“Expendable income they may or may not have, at the very least might be a bigger struggle to provide because they are paying more for gas and groceries,” Stewart said.
Stewart said some educators may look to cut expenses to find enough money, but, for a lot of people, that isn’t an option, and classroom supplies may be on the chopping block. Though there could be an outlet to help teachers get supplies.
Granite District Spokesperson Ben Horsely said a lot of schools have funds they can tap into or they can talk to their principal but he knows that this remains a concern for many.
“Obviously, the concern of almost everything going up, it’s a challenge and it going to continue to be a challenge,” said Horsely.
