It's a lesson in life that educators hope stay with some mid-Michigan high school students for the rest of their lives.
An exercise named the Game of Life teaches students to be tolerant of their classmates. Coded identification tags signify different races and economic status. The catch is the students don't know what they say.
The way the tags are coded will trigger how the students are treated. Students go through life trying to receive housing, jobs, transportation, and food.
School officials say increasing sensitivity helps eliminate some of the barriers students face in the real world and the game brings more awareness to racism and discrimination.
