Students at Bullitt Central High School in Shepherdsville, KY got a taste of the real world when the school hosted its first official 'Adulting Day'.

Instead of algebra and gym class, students were taught real-life skills like how to pay bills, change a tire, and cook for themselves.  Other workshops included lessons about credit cards and a talk from police on how to behave during a traffic stop.

A school official said she got the idea from a Facebook post that said kids 'needed a class in high school about taxes and cooking'.
