Students at Lookout Valley High School in Chattanooga, Tenn., bought cars, paid for day care and apartments during a personal-finance "Reality Check" scenario sponsored by the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce. This year's students will be the first to graduate high school since a state law was enacted requiring a half-credit, personal-finance class. Tennessee is one of 14 states that require students to take a personal-finance course in high school.
