Grange Middle School eighth-grader Francis Ancheta on Wednesday took a career class that offered him the jobs choices of a river guide or a computer engineer.
He preferred engineering, given the monthly paycheck of $8,180. The $1,480 paycheck of a river guide wouldn’t earn him enough to buy a house, he said. But he really prefers another career option.
“Armed forces,” he said during this four-day, career-and-budgeting session in math class.
