Midwest Regional Director will provide overview of federal budget and long-term fiscal challenges to economics and civics students at Aplington-Parkersburg High School. Next, the students will engage in the interactive budget exercise called "Principles & Priorities."
Principles & Priorities is our flagship exercise that has been used in hundreds of High Schools, Colleges and Universities across the country. In it, participants make decisions about the best combination of program spending and tax policies to match with their larger sense of what the principles behind our budgets should be and what priorities the government should place at the forefront of fiscal decision-making.
