Over The Years, Many People Have Told Me They Wished They Had Learned About Money When They Were Children
It's unfortunate that there is no formal curriculum about money management and budgeting in the majority of our schools today.
Many years ago when I taught forth grade students, we started a project of selling pop corn to the other students after school. First, we went to the bank to get a loan. The only reason we were actually able to get a loan, I think, is that the father of one of my students was the bank president. Our ‘marketing department’ called the paper to let them know we were getting a bank loan and they printed a front-page story. The publicity was so good that parents would buy popcorn along with their children.
