VOTE: Deficits and Debt

Registration & Breakfast 7:30-8:00 a.m.

Workshop  8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

This one-day workshop is designed to enhance your knowledge of  the economic policies involved with Deficits and Debt, how those policies affect your students, and how they can become better decision-makers regarding their future.


This workshop is one of eight you may take in any sequence to expand your understanding of economic issues in public discourse. The VOTE Program is unique in presenting alternative perspectives of economic issues through informative, entertaining, and experiential learning. VOTE workshops are recommended for middle and high school teachers of social studies, history, government, civics, business, economics, mathematics, science, and language arts. 


Professor Cramer’s workshop will include lessons on the existence, importance, and size of deficit spending, the challenge of revenue and expenditure decisions, options to manage our deficits and debt, the role of balanced budget laws in our lives; a discussion of conservative, liberal, and radical perspectives in modern policy discourse; and participant modeling of activities for immediate use in your classroom.


All VOTE conferences and workshops are taught by Amy S. Cramer, Ph.D.
