As a teacher, you have the most important job in our country because you inspire people to think critically and have a positive impact on the world. Voices On The Economy (VOTE) is a Tucson-based, award-winning program that teaches educators to present diverse perspectives in a fair, balanced, accurate way so that students can make up their own minds about what they believe and find their own voices on the issues.
Join us for a free, one-day workshop that will delve into the issue of Retirement Security, looking at it from the Conservative, Liberal, and Radical perspectives. What are their different policy ideas? (Social Security? Private insurance accounts? A social tax to cover everyone's retirement security equally?) How does each perspective analyze the problem? Hands-on exercises will bring the material alive, and we will provide you with lesson plans and other materials so you can bring these ideas to your classrooms.
