It's back to school time in Spain!

The arrival of September not only means the return to work and the start of a daily routine for adults, but it also means the young ones must return to school and face the new academic year. In short, the longed for and, at the same time, the reluctant return to school is here for another year. 

Extra Expenses 

Just like every year, The Confederation of Consumers of Spain, better known by its acronym CECU, has carried out a study about the costs of returning to school for children. Keep in mind that this is usually linked to the purchase of books and school supplies, the choice of extracurricular activities and, in some cases, the purchase of a new uniform. This is the reason why many parents consider September to be another expensive month like January. 

Specifically, the study that has been referred to states the public school canteen on average costs families up to €89 per month, while textbooks are almost €190. To this we must add the purchase of school uniforms or clothes in general, which can range between €150 and €200. This means that by the end of the year, every family has spent almost €1300 to send their children to school, even if it is to a public institution.

The Official Calendar of Back to School 

It must be said that, in Spain, each autonomous community chooses when their children will go back to school. The earliest has always been the Valencian Community. The university students, secondary, and primary school pupils have already returned to class on 3rd of September. More flexibility has been shown in Extremadura, which has prorated the return of children and young people to school between 1st and 15th of September. 

However, in the Community of Madrid all the children have already returned to school on September 10th. In Andalusia they return to school progressively between the 10th and the 16th of that same month. The rest of the autonomous communities have established a cut-off date for returning to school at no later than the 16th of September. 

Oddly enough, children do not take back to school time so badly. In fact, they usually look forward to seeing their friends again so the advantages outweigh the disadvantages for them. Perhaps the only downside of returning to school is having to get up early in the morning.
