business news in context, analysis with attitude

Target has announced that it is currently offering teachers a 15 percent discount on “"select classroom supplies, from pens, pencils, crayons and markers to classroom storage and organization and tissues, hand sanitizer and more.”

The discount is available at Target stores nationwide until July 21.
KC's View:
I love these promotions. As I mentioned when I recently reported on one that Kroger was doing, there was a story in Education Week the other day about a new report saying that in more than half the US states, public school teachers do not make a living wage. It is a small but important thing when businesses do things like this to support teachers.

Especially the bit about hand sanitizer. Trust me.
