Also, nearly 1 in 10 pupils dream of becoming a teacher when they grow up
According to research from Lloyds Bank, parents are spending an average of £183.30 per child to get them ready for the new term as children across the UK head back to the classroom.
For families that have two school-age kids, this means at least £366 is being forked out every year, as the summer draws to a close.
While kids have been at home, parents have been helping with lessons, with many sharing their wisdom on money management. Meanwhile, two fifths (41%) reportedly used homeschooling during lockdown to teach their kids about cash.
When given a list of prospective jobs and asked to estimate the respective salaries, despite believing that as Prime Minister they could earn £100,000, none of the children surveyed said that they were interested in a career in politics.
Similarly, just 1% said they wanted to work as an astronaut or for a space agency, despite believing the role could command a healthy annual salary of £70,000.
