Today's Happy News: High School Students Playing Store

Primary school students play store (with paper "money") to teach students basic math.

These high school students are actually operating a store, to teach students math, business skills, job skills, and public spirit.

I'd like to see this happen in certain small towns, which will be nameless here, where the people have been either wailing "Why don't we have our own Wal-Mart?" or trading with foreign-owned chains such as Food Lion or (the new, NOT improved) Giant.
