High School Students Learn Financial Lessons

Some teachers in Lincoln are taking advantage of these historic economic times to teach their students some valuable lessons.

At Lincoln high school, one economics class is focussing on topics such as IRA's, 401Ks as well as investing and saving.

They are all topics that were on the schedule since the beginning of the year but with recent events, students seem to be paying even more attention.

Stella Yoon, a senior at Lincoln high says, “I'm glad I took this class because before I leave high school because it's going to help me prepare how to budget and financially be ok.”

Many of the students have also said they've felt some of the financial hardships hitting them at home.

Some say they've seen their alowances significantly drop in the past few months.
