Students at Elida Middle School got real world experience Friday as they participated in the "Real World, Real Money" program. 

The program is a management lesson for 8th graders who are assigned jobs, families and they have to learn how to balance their budget to see what life may be like after high school. 

4-H Educator for Ohio State University, Kelly Coble says the students get to see what their parents go through to provide for them and they learn how to survive with the money they have. 

They're figuring out that you know maybe I might need to go to college or you know I might need to pick a different career path than what I'm in if I'm planning on spending big bucks on the things that I want in life," says Coble.
