What they're saying about the Reality Store
I found your session with the students enjoyable, and more importantly, productive. They seemed to be very engaged, which is a challenge in any environment!"
Jeff Morse, Chairman & Dulles District Representative, Loudoun County School Board
The Reality Store is an excellent way for students to learn through a PBL experience. I see actual financial experiences such as Reality Store as the type of deeper and connected learning envisioned by state leaders when Personal Finance and Economics were first developed as required courses. We would like to continue with Reality Store and similar “life-experiences” with our students."
Dr. Douglas Foulton, Principal, Freedom High School
I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to everyone who helped with Reality Store yesterday. You all did such an amazing job and the students that attended really did enjoy it and got something out of it. I am so grateful to the volunteers from the Financial Literacy Council and the PTSO for being here early and engaging with our students. "
Tracy Wood, Counselor, Riverside High School
