There are many benefits to the Money Cents for Kids program.  At its foundation, I believe that it is one of the most powerful ways to help break the cycle of poverty as it relates to money management.  Research indicates that families of poverty spend money as they receive it without a plan or ability to budget it.  The Money Cents program teaches students real life applications of money management while it also serves as an effective behavior management system.  After implementing the Money Cents program K-5, we saw a reduction of office referrals for the first quarter of this year from 48 in the previous year to 16.  (Half of those were bus referrals.) I believe that this program positively impacts many aspects of our educational program.
