Voices On The Economy (VOTE) is a Tucson-based, award-winning program that teaches educators to present diverse perspectives in a balanced and 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 issues of Livelihood and Housing, looking at them from the Conservative, Liberal, and Radical perspectives. What are their different policy ideas? (Unfettered wage and rent signals? Price ceilings and price floors? Worker-owned business incubators and resident-owned cooperatives?) How does each perspective analyze the problem? Hands-on exercises will bring the material alive, and we will provide you materials so you can bring these ideas back to your classrooms.
No previous knowledge of economics is required. Appropriate for all subject areas and levels of educators from middle school through university. Lunch will be provided. You will earn a certificate for 6.0 hours of professional development. The VOTE Educator Series is taught by VOTE founder and president Amy S. Cramer, Ph.D.
