When I wrote about the DC Capital Gains program last year, I was a bit critical of the program for failing to capitalize on an opportunity to educate its youth on money management using today's technology. Well, it has been a year and the program is still going, but no reports of the great technological innovations I had hoped for. Recently, the program required a cash infusion of $255,000 voted on by the D.C. Council.
I am shocked that innovate technology has not been more integrated into the program given that it has a partnership with EdLabs which is associated with one of the most prestigious Ivy League universities in America. Hopefully, in year two, their customized online database will expand to include tech savvy ways to view and manage themoney students are given for high academic performance.
