Kings students face possibly frightening challenge: the household budget | Business
KINGS MILLS, OH (FOX19) - The “Real Money, Real World” program will be at Kings High School 8 a.m. this Friday, March 16. Businesses from throughout greater Cincinnati will come to KHS to help students learn what it’s like to live and balance a budget in the real world.
At the beginning of the program students will be assigned a marital status, a family status, and an income. Based on that information, students have to budget for a home, transportation, childcare, insurance, and everything else that comes from being an adult in the real world.
The school district says this is a great hands-on experience for the students. Many comment on how they never realized how expensive everything could be.
