Parents Spend $400 On Extracurricular Activities, Survey Says

Parents Spend $400 On Extracurricular Activities, Survey Says

TheStreet (Aug. 14, 2014) — As the back-to-school shopping season heats up, some parents overlook the unexpected expenses that arise throughout the school year. A new survey from RetailMeNot said that while the average family is expected to spend over $650 on back-to-school related costs, families will also spend almost $400 on extracurricular activities. To save money, work with your child to select a limited number of activities, to ensure they can be dedicated enough to the cause, while still having enough time for schoolwork. Your child may also be able to score a discount if they volunteer for the organization or sports league. Putting in a few extra hours here and there could result in a discounted rate.

Top 10 Dumbest States in America, From Tennessee to West Virginia

TheStreet (May 29, 2014) — As the income gap widens between college and high school graduates, we're ranking the ten dumbest states in America, determined by the percentage of the population with Bachelor's degrees. Number ten of the group is Tennessee, where 23% of the population has Bachelor's degrees. While Fortune 500 companies like FedEx and Autozone are in Memphis, most of the state's jobs don't require advanced educational degrees. Tennessee has over 82,000 farms, 60% of which are used to raise cattle. The state has a median household income of about $42,000, making it 44th in the country, and has an average SAT score of 1709.
