Mat walks with his mom, </span>Aoddi<span style="line-height: 1.15;"> </span>Attasara<span style="line-height: 1.15;">, up to the teller window. He’s much too short to see what transpires up there, but he knows the amount is $50 – and that it has something to do with his education. After the transaction, the two make their way over to a table where a plate of cookies, a stack of coloring books, and a clear plastic piggy bank await them.</span> Wed, 15 May 2013 23:27:09 +0000 Jen Chien 27210 at http://kalw.org Kindergarteners get a jump on college savings
