Dollars & Sense


Courtesy of Harlan County Schools A Dollars & Sense program was recently held at Cawood Elementary School. The program is similar to the traditional reality store concept where students learn about career decisions, income and the planned and unplanned costs associated with life. Students drew for pets, had to purchase food, clothes, entertainment, grooming, pay taxes, did banking exercises and much more. The program was provided by the Harlan County Cooperative Extension Service’s 4-H and Youth Development program and was sponsored by the school’s Family Resource and Youth Service Center. Organizers say it was an eye-opening experience for some students on making good decisions and getting a quality education.
