Sounds like they should fire the Econ. Teacher for failure to teach them that the same effort could have made $20 bills... and I think NCLB would say this was evidence that higher-order thinking skills need attention by staff... was it a Mac or a PC they were using *runs*

School Kids Caught Counterfeiting Dollars
Apr 11, 8:26 AM (ET)
SEATTLE (Reuters) - A 12-year-old Seattle school student and his
buddies were caught after counterfeiting $20 in one-dollar bills that
were circulated among the students and used in the cafeteria to buy
food, school officials said on Friday.
"On Monday, our lunchroom staff was counting the till at the end of the
day and noticed that there was a dollar bill that looked a little bit
different," said Seattle School District spokeswoman Patti Spencer.
The next day, a sixth-grade student who offered a fake dollar to buy
beef jerky led school officials to a fellow sixth-grader who had made
the money using a computer and a printer. Those two and another friend
had also passed the counterfeit dollar bills onto other students.
