Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A local non-profit is helping students in the metro become both more college and career ready.

Superintendent of North Dakota Public Instruction Kerstin Baesler was the key-note speaker today, speaking on behalf of the Junior Achievement Program.

The Junior Achievement Program is one of the oldest, fastest growing non-profits in the area, and teaches students about the importance of financial literacy.

Baesler says the program provides intellectual growth, which is key to the growth and expectation of students throughout North Dakota.

Kerstin Baesler- Superintendent of Public Instruction, N.D.: “Local school districts will still be allowed to choose their curriculum, choose their reading material; but we've just set an expectation at each grade level that's uniform across the country.”

More than 5,500 students in Fargo-Moorhead schools are impacted by Junior Achievement's programs.
