Ottawa, Putnam County -
Students from every Putnam County High School are pulling out their pencils and calculators for some real world experience today.
Real Money, Real World gives the students a simulated job and a family then lets them experience the costs and decision making of daily life. Working with an average monthly salary, they open bank accounts, pay bills and balance check books. The students must decide between what they need and what they want as they spend their salaries. Sometimes with eye opening results, even with a salary of 50 thousand dollars.
More than 400 students are taking part in the event.
