JA BizTown...A Make Believe World Focusing on Real Life Issues
Junior Achievement's BizTown is a one of a kind approach for learning about the real world. It's like a very practical class field trip. Here, kids of all ages learn the value of money and working. Hundreds take part each day of the actual school year. Corporate sponsors, like Culver's and Kohl's, help make all this happen on a daily basis.
It's estimated some 93% of the students who participate in the program recognize the importance of staying in school.
Recently, CBS58's Michael Schlesinger spent a little time at this northwest Milwaukee location and gives us a flavor about what's being learned.
