VTsIOM: expenses for preparing children for school doubled
On average, Russians spend about 27 thousand rubles on preparing a child for school. Over the past two years, the amount has almost doubled.
According to the website of the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIOM), on average, Russians plan to spend 13 431 rubles on a set of school uniforms (including sports uniforms and shoes). This is twice as much as two years ago. And the average cost of a backpack, respondents estimate in 3 119 rubles. In 2017, the amount was called about 1 785 rubles.
Least of all Russians are willing to pay for gifts and flowers for teachers - no more than 1 177 rubles. Sociologists note that in Russia they have begun to consider less that preparation for school should be fully paid for by budget funds. Only 15% of respondents adhere to this opinion. But in 2010, there were 28% of them.
Recently, the State Duma proposed to introduce a program “September Capital”. Its essence is to reimburse part of the costs of parents to prepare the child for the school year.
