M.S. 53’s Banking Program
Veteran math teacher Regina Edwards is teaching a special math class at MS 53. "Banking on our future" is introducing students to the intricacies of banking. Edwards, who is teaching the course to three seventh-grade classes, hopes this will get them ready for their adult fiscal responsibilities. Topics to be discussed include the basics of banking, checking and savings accounts, the power of credit and basic investments. Principal Ken Graham believes these courses, in their third year, will help the students become more productive adults. Graham also hopes to bring more business-related programs to MS 53 to enrich the curriculum.
