New York City teens get citywide civics lesson
How should the city’s public schools spend their money? Ask the students.
Teens at 47 city high schools are getting the chance to say where $2,000 in school funds go in a new, citywide civics lesson.
The Civics for All Participatory Budgeting Project gives $2,000 for high school students to identify priorities and direct spending on programs approved by their school community.
