I wish I had this class in high school. The NY Times dealbook has a rather heartwarming story about high school students figuring out the latest M&A deals in a business and entrepreneurship class at Martin Luther King Jr. High School of the Arts and Technology. The class splits its time between its retail business and its deal advisory projects, and even works on hypothetical deals like a purchase of the NY Times by Google. For those high school student readers of our blog (are there actually any??) or parents of high-schoolers (the more likely), you may also want to take a look at Whatrton's new Web-based project called Knowledge@Wharton High School which promotes financial literacy among students and teachers.
