Screen shot of Reality U—a financial literacy project, how are you getting there? What is your plan? What students are saying.


What is reality university
WHAT IS REALITY UNIVERSITY?

  • Reality U serves as an important and relevant exercise that helps students understand the importance of wise decision-making about their financial future as well as how their current reality impacts their future. It sends a strong message to the students that staying in school is essential for their financial success.

  • Since the students occupations are aligned with their current grade point average, the students quickly realize how their future is impacted by their educational commitment. High schools are particularly interested in helping students realize this fact in order to increase attendance, improve academic achievement, and reduce the high number of student dropouts.

  • "Reality U showed me that I have control over my future, it changed the course of my life."

START TRANSITION EARLY

  • Junior Achievement (2010) conducted studies that revealed students make up their mind in the 4th or 5th grade – whether or not to drop out of school.

  • Four out of five dropouts (81 percent) said there should be more opportunities for real-world learning.

  • They said students need to see the connection between school and getting a good job.
