2014-05-07-economic-lessons-1Students at Headland High School learned some first-hand lessons in economics May 7 as they took part in the “Reality Check“ program at the school. Each student was given an individual identity and life situation, such as a single parent with three children. They were then given a fixed amount of money to live on and led through billable purchases, such as cars, food, power, insurance and others.  Volunteers from various city businesses and teachers were on hand to give the students a healthy dose of realism during their search. In the top photo, Mayor Ray Marler and City Clerk Heather Shippey operated a “store” were students bought food. In the bottom photo, the students lined up to purchase insurance.
