Back to School: It’s Make It or Break It Time for the Economy

Posted by admin on Aug 1, 2013 7:49:50 AM

by Marc Joseph (reprinted from August 1, 2013 Huffington Post)


Spending this fall for students K-12 is expected to drop 12 percent, according to a National Retail Federation survey reported in the Wall Street Journal. The average that will be spent on each kid is $634.78, down from $688.62 in 2012. Even those going to college are expecting decreases from $836.80 this year, down from $907.22 last year. So it looks like the payroll tax hike, the sequestration and the continued sluggish job market are finally going to rear their ugly heads during the first major sales season of the year. This is troublesome news for retailers because the back to school (BTS) season is like the canary in the coal mine; BTS sales trends historically predict how the holiday fourth quarter sales will turn out. And in another BTS warning about the economy, 47.7 percent of college students expect to live at home, up from 42.9 percent in 2012.

5 Ways to Help Teachers and Students Beat Sequestration

Posted by admin on May 10, 2013 7:07:53 AM

“Here we are at the end of another school year, and once again, teachers throughout the US are facing uncertainty,” said Marc Joseph, Founder and CEO of DollarDays. “Will they have a job next school year, and if so, will their classrooms balloon to unmanageable sizes? Congress has not acted and now the impact of sequestration on federal educational programs is becoming a frightening reality.”

DollarDays, America’s premier online wholesaler, works closely with teachers and school administrators across the country, supplying the tools and supplies needed most in public education. We hear the horror stories of budget and personnel cuts from our customers in primary and secondary education throughout the year and the thought of deeper education cuts does not look good for our kids or our teachers.
