The Concord Coalition will present an overview of the federal budget and long-term fiscal challenges associated with it to Tartan High School AP macro-economics students. The students will then participate in a short version of the Principles & Priorities interactive budget exercise.
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.
