VOTE: The Federal Budget

11-12-2022 7:30 AM - 11-12-2022 2:30 PM

Voices On The Economy (VOTE) is a Tucson-based, award-winning program that teaches educators to present diverse perspectives in a balanced and accurate way so that students can make up their own minds about what they believe and find their own voices on the issues.

Join us for a free, one-day online workshop that will delve into the issue of the Federal Budget, looking at it from the conservative, liberal, and radical perspectives. What are their different policy ideas? (Annual balanced budget? Cyclical balanced budget? Sustainable balanced budget?) How does each perspective analyze the problem? Hands-on exercises will bring the material alive, and we will provide you with lesson plans and other materials so you can bring these ideas back to your classrooms.

No previous knowledge of economics is required. Appropriate for all subject areas and levels of educators from middle school through university. Lunch via Grubhub will be provided. You will earn a certificate for 6.0 hours of professional development. 

Workshop starts at 7:30 am PT; Check Time Zone Converter for time change.
