Burger Students Learn About Money Management

Eighth graders in Mrs. McAllister’s home and careers class at Burger Junior High School have been learning all about money management. During this unit, students had an opportunity to participate in an online financial literacy program called Banzai, which exposes them to real-life adult financial dilemmas, from taming a budget and paying auto insurance to navigating taxes. To wrap up the unit, Danielle Mangiola from Pittsford Credit Union, who sponsored the workbooks, came to speak to the class and answer questions, and Kaci Jones, a reporter from WHEC, stopped by to cover the story.
