BRIEF: Students learn to budget in the 'real world' in Pascagoula

PASCAGOULA, Jan 17, 2013 (The Sun Herald - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Students from Pascagoula and Gautier high schools learned some "real world" budgeting skills Thursday morning at the Family Interactive Center in Pascagoula.

The program was put on by the Mississippi State University Extension Service and volunteers from Regions Bank.

Each student was randomly assigned a career, salary, marital status and number of children. They were then prompted to visit the 13 stations and decide how to spend their money on different "real world" essentials including groceries, housing, insurance, transportation and utilities.
