Government: Budget Choices

Learners engage in a simulated city council budget meeting and must decide which programs to cut or fund and whether or not to raise taxes. They develop coalitions with lobbyists or community groups while class members sign up to speak at the mock hearing. Student council members then make decisions based on the input of the community speakers.
