Study: Student Spending On Course Materials Slips Josh Moody - Josh Moody, Forbes

A new study finds college students are paying less for course materials, reflecting a decade-long downward trend. College students spent $484 on average for required course materials in the 2017-18 school year, down from $579 in the prior academic year. In the long term, that’s down from $701 over the last decade, according to the Student Watch™: Attitudes and Behaviors toward Course Materials: 2017-2018 Report, released by the National Association of College Stores earlier this week. One area in which spending was up, however, was on technology and school supplies, which the twice-yearly survey reported was at $612, a jump of $106 more than students spent last academic year according to 34,000 respondents in the U.S. and Canada. https://www.forbes.com/sites/joshmoody/2018/08/18/study-student-spending-on-course-materials-slips/#38b207af62af
