A Comprehensive Curriculum from Teachers College, Columbia University
The following videos illustrate the result of a three-year development grant from the Peter G. Peterson Foundation to Teachers College, Columbia University. Titled "Understanding Fiscal Responsibility: A Curriculum for Teaching About the Federal Budget, National Debt, and Budget Deficit," the research-based, inquiry-driven Understanding Fiscal Responsibility (UFR) lessons connect students to the current public policy dilemmas about the federal budget, national debt, and budget deficit that confront the United States and its citizens. The Understanding Fiscal Responsibility curriculum is designed to teach high school students the facts about public policies that have led to persistent budget deficits, and identify the significant consequences that growing national debt has on the future of the United States and its citizens.
