Target’s annual back-to-school deals are back for teachers and students.
This year, the teacher appreciation event runs from July 16-Aug. 26. All K-12 teachers, homeschool teachers, teachers working at daycare centers and early childhood learning centers, university or college professors and vocational/trade/technical school teachers with valid identification are eligible, the retailer announced this week.
More than 90% of teachers spend their own money for classroom supplies, and they typically spend more than $500, according to the National Education Association.
