Students in LHS Business teacher Tiffany Holka’s 4th period Business Management class got a chance to hang out with a special guest today. LPS Superintendent Steve Joel spoke to Holka’s class as part of the Junior Achievement program.

Joel, who is a JA volunteer chooses a different high school each year to present information to. Last year he did Southwest, so this year he’s doing Lincoln High. “He comes in to Economics class and teaches JA materials,” Holka said. “This year it’s the economics of small businesses”

The lesson today was the differences between market and command economies. Students got into groups and had a scenario where they were putting on a concert.  Three of them put on a concert in a command  economy and three of them put on a concert in a  market economy, and they shared what the differences were.

“He was great,” senior Julian Samuel said. “He talked about how in command economies the governments run everything and the people don’t have a say in what they want to do.”
