Value of Education: Education and Earning Power

Students explore the concept a higher education yields higher earnings. Throughout the class, students visit six workstations and examine occupations, education, salaries, spending, banking, and taxes. As students rotate through the stations, they simulate life: earning money, paying bills, finding housing, transportation, and creating a budget. Students discuss how they felt about settling for less than they wanted or having enough with some left over.
