Every student.......even as a senior in high school should have to be put into this type of scenario. That is REAL life for most of us......all the stuck up snobs that are used to being handed everything need to realize, life isnt all about you.

While this could be a useful tool, in the end it is only pencil marks on paper. Will it open the eyes of some students? Maybe.

For the ones graduating this May, they will discover the harsh realities of life very soon when trying to find a job. There is an article in the J&C about it.

Most of those born in the late 70's or later have only ever known good economic times. The last big recession was 80-81. The tech crash of 2000 was a small bump compared to what is happening now.
