Witness - Taiwan School Bank Experiment: Money Lessons for Life

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

A counting machine flips through a stack of bright pink-coloured paper money - bills destined for children at an elementary school in Taiwan. The notes are either passed out by teachers for a job well done, exchanged by children at a student-run grocery store, or - if the experiment is a success - carefully saved up and responsibly spent. The idea for this school bank experiment was conceived by Lai Hao-wei, an education specialist at Wenlin Elementary School in Taipei, who was tasked by the school's principle to teach students the value of money.
