Every kid needs supplies for going back to school.
But, depending on which school they attend, some families are asked to spend significantly more than others.
A recent Houston Chronicle report analyzed the back-to-school lists for nearly 50 schools across 17 area districts, finding the most expensive list can be found at Pasadena ISD’s Teague Elementary, at $110.56, and the cheapest at Humble ISD’s Ridge Creek Elementary, which checks in at $34.05.
That’s more than a $75 difference.
Some of the most expensive lists belong to Fort Bend ISD schools, ranging from $90-$96.
If you or someone you know needs help in securing their requested supplies, there are organizations that can help.
Good luck this year to everyone!
