Ask an adult what they wish they understood more clearly before heading into the real world, and many will answer how to better manage household finances. A quick glance at Americans’ collective debt, which totals more than $11.52 trillion, proves that there are lessons to be learned. To help improve that knowledge, Kohler Credit Union has partnered with some area middle and high school teachers to provide their classes access to Bonzai, an online education tool designed to introduce students to adult dilemmas such as managing debt, reconciling bank statements, balancing budgets and making tradeoffs. The program features real-life simulations that build financial knowledge in a format that is fun and easy to comprehend.
