NB Students Want Real-Life Experience At School

New Brunswick students are saying they want more real-life experiences before leaving high school.

New Brunswick was the first stop the "It's My Future" summit, a cross-country tour capturing the student 
 voice on education. Students from eight school boards in the province and the NBCC attended the summit.

Akela Peoples is President and CEO of "The Learning Partnership," the national charitable organization that held the summit.

She tells CHSJ news the goal of the summit is not only to find opportunities for enhancement, but to find out the kind of information that is and isn't useful to students.

She says money management is one real-life experience that students are asking for more of.
