The program called “Banzai” is offered at 14 schools from Corpus Christi to Victoria.
Students at West Oso High School use Banzai in their Principles of Business and Finance class.
The program teaches students how to use a debit or credit card and distinguish between the two. They also learn how to transfer funds and how to budget.
As part of the class, the students are placed in real life situations like paying rent and saving for college.
