Money Management Training At R.I. Elementary

Posted: Updated:

Junior Achievement is teaching money management to area kids. In Rock Island at France Willard Elementary, kids have been learning all year about ways to manage money.

They were taught about why they should have a savings account and why they need to be careful with how they spend their money.

They play games to give them real life situations.

"It shows kids how they put money into an account, how they get money out of the account and why they have to do both and it helps them understand wants versus needs," Junior Achievement president Barbara VenHorst said.

Three hundred students at Frances Willard Elementary School take part in junior achievement.
