After the Election: Budget Hero

Nov 7, 2012 by

Budget Hero:  Now that the election is over, there will probably be a shift to focus on the budget crisis and how to fix it before we go into the spending reduction phase known as sequestration.  While the concept of sequestration can be very confusing, one of the tools that may help our students (and ourselves) understand the U.S. budget crisis is Budget Hero.  Put together by the Wilson Center’s Science Technology and Innovation Program and the Public Insight Network team at American Public Media, the game serves to teach students about the U.S. Budget and how it reflects “our values, choices, and economic condition.”  This game is a good one- I highly recommend you check it out.
