This is the third year that I volunteer for Junior Achievement – a program to inspire kids to value free enterprise, business and economics as a way to improve the quality of their lives.
After having done second and third grade I am teaching fourth grade this year. I was pleasantly surprised that this year’s curriculum includes business ethics (starting with 4th graders). I tell you – those kids just loved talking about the balance between profits and doing what’s right for a specific situation (i.e., environmental, etc.).
Kudos to the organizers of Junior Achievement!
