Two classes of government students will attempt to reduce the nation's deficits over the next 10 years by participating in an 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.
