Parents and children alike are facing uncertainty over schools and colleges opening in the fall.
Families polled in the group’s survey said they will purchase more higher-priced items like laptops, desktops and computer accessories for their school and college-going children in anticipation that at least some classes will take place online, the group said.
The Deloitte report, which recently polled 1,200 parents with kids in K-12 grades and 1,025 families with college-going kids, indicated average spending of $529 per household on clothes, supplies, computers and electronics for schoolkids, up 2% from last year.
