This training is anti-capitalist, and would be regarded by the state, as a terrorist act. Will anyone be arrested?

It is about time that kids were taught financial prudence and everyday life skills. This is the type of useful lessons that young people will benefit from, to be taught the value of money and promoting saving for desired goods so they appreciate the vale of hard work. This is long overdue.

"the vale of hard work."
Exactly. Well said.
And non of them will have the notion of lifting it and finding they and their forebears have been tricked by the banking system, into giving up their , one, precious life, for the acquisition of money, which has been created out of thin air.
Money does not grow on trees and it was not there when God created the world and God, Himself, did not create it; it is man made, a carrot, to stimulate commerce, to stimulate a surplus, to allow free-time for those with excess, to think on other things and invent. The pay-day loan companies are nothing the banks don't do - except charge higher rates. They prey on the foolish, and it works.

I don't suppose any of those kids will see this, so don't worry, they won't get ideas.

I am sure it's just the right time to increase young generation awareness about the traps awaiting for them on the easy money pass. Hope some really helpful data were taught to this group of students and the knowledge will spread.
The recent research has shown young people tend to depend longer on their parents and are reluctant to accept financial responsibility.
