Back to School Costs On Rise

The price tag for parents to send their kids back to school this year is estimated at more than $500. Accounting and consulting firm Deloitte has a new survey that puts the price tag per family at $510. That’s for things like shoes, pens, pencils and even technology. Deloitte’s Liz Verrill said such shopping is typically done at brick and mortar stores, not online.
