What I Learned in the Real World



copsLast week, about 180 sixth-grade Crusaders spent part of their February school vacation launching businesses, delivering mail, writing speeding tickets, cashing checks, publishing a newspaper, and handling a million other details of the grown-up world. Somebody even got to be mayor. All of it happened around the busy Exchange City town square, located at Johnson & Wales University Harborside campus. Participating Crusaders got a crash course in business and civics and learned a lot about adult life by running their own city for a day. Here’s what some of them said:
