Students in first through fifth grades participated in "JA in a Day," where an entire Junior Achievement program, including five or more lessons, were delivered in the course of a single school day.
There were 19 volunteers with Iberia Bank who came in to help educate the kids in economics.
Organizers say it's important for the students to get these lessons at such a young age.
"The earlier the better. If you get them sold on doing honest work, having work ethics, taking care of themselves then that's going to become a part of them," says Ora Crenshaw with Franklin Elementary School.
Franklin was one of four schools in the state to participate in Wednesday's program.
