Bidding for Office: Who Should Pay for Elections


Should candidates have to spend millions of dollars to get elected? Where do they get their money? How does the need to raise huge amounts of money affect who gets elected and the decisions they make? These are among many vital questions raised in this important and timely video. The program gives students a firm grounding in the facts and issues they need to know to have an informed discussion about campaign finance reform, and the problems with campaign financing that some feel are destroying our democracy. Students will learn about PACs, issue ads, soft money, and lobbyists. An excellent program for promoting critical thinking and discussion, this DVD comes with a 12-page discussion guide filled with reproducible activities, and a classroom poster.
