Review for National Priorities Project, Northampton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a public school librarian for nearly two decades. My husband is an educator as were my parents. I came across NPP's new book "A People's Guide to the Federal Budget" at a book fair and was absolutely blown away by the organization's ability to put me -- as a tax payer and recipient of federal spending -- at the center of this giant budget -- the U.S. budget. For the first time in my adult life, I can make sense of federal policy and process. It's an incredible feeling. I can actually read the newspaper and understand what the heck is going on -- and then I can do something about it. I haven't been a donor, but am sending a check this year. NPP has added tremendous value to my life, and that of my students.
