This has got me so full of squee that I simply can't express it.

It's a story about an elementary school on the south side of Chicago in an African American neighborhood. Kids in the first several grades are learning to invest via an actual portfolio they co-create and manage themselves, with adult help, funded by a donation from an investment company.

I have been fantasizing about creating a financial literacy program of this kind in an inner city setting for years.

Like, for *three* years.

If I experience any more pleasure today I am going to fall out.
