The Reporter: Biz Kid$ fills student, business, societal needs

By Richard Bammer

How refreshing it was on Friday to see and hear Mark Miller lead a workshop/review for eighth-graders on Biz Kid$ at Vaca Peña Middle School in Vacaville.

A national financial literacy program, Biz Kid$, a roughly five-hour course the students completed in mid-April, is filled with good-to-know practical stuff, such as words used in the workplace, among them compound interest, long-term goal, profit, credit card. Other good stuff includes money management, entrepreneurial skills and financial planning.
