Over 94% of U.S. public school teachers use personal funds to purchase instructional supplies to supplement student learning, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (2018). Teacher expenditures are also compounded by federal, state, and district budget cuts which impact teacher income and ability to make purchases with school funds. According to a survey taken by 3,938 U.S. public, private, and charter school teachers, teachers spent an average of $745 annually for supplies due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic (Karbowski, 2020).
