Back to School Costs Hit Cherokee Families

Cherokee Phoenix, Posted: Sep 15, 2008

TAHLEQUAH, Okla.Cherokee families encountered a harsh reality as they prepared to send their children back to school in August. Not only were they paying more for milk and gasoline, but also for school supplies, clothes and shoes. Dena Bluebird and her husband had to spend $150 to $200 more this year for each of their two children. Parents also found that prices for elementary school breakfasts and lunches were up by 25 cents, and high school lunches were up by 40 cents. The Bluebirds are saving money by eating out less.
