Personal Finance
11-12
This is certainly a "jaw dropper" shocking look at those who were fortunate to "have" but with irresponsible decision making and lack of financial literacy skills lost their financial security. In this time of "celebrity" interest, it is a huge eye opener to students that even the "rich and famous" can have money issues.

Personal Finance
11th - 12th
This documentary was actually highly suggested by one of our school board members who happened to catch it one night on ESPN. I have continued to show it in Personal Finance as it immediately engages the students. Students are always amazed to see how professional athletes, who have made millions of dollars throughout their career, can go broke so easily. Whether a person makes $30,000 per year or millions of dollars per year, if expenses exceed income, there will be a problem! This documentary points out the importance of budgeting and saving for the future while engaging students with unfortunate stories from real professional athletes!
