Lux-Casco Students Learn About Fiscal Cliff Crisis

Members of Congress weren't the only ones discussing the "fiscal cliff" this week.

Freshmen in Cassidy McGowan's political science class at Luxemburg-Casco High School spent their entire hour Wednesday learning the ins and outs of the country's financial woes and what Congress did to attempt to fix them. 

McGowan says the fiscal cliff crisis is just one part of a broader economic challenge for the U.S. He says the next hurdle for the new Congress to clear is dealing with the debt ceiling.

McGowan says he shares the frustration of many Americans about the way the 112th Congress dealt with the fiscal cliff crisis, waiting until "the last hour of the last day of the year" to address an issue he says should have been dealt with months ago.

"If one of my students waited until the last night before a long research paper (was due) I'd be incredibly  disappointed," says McGowan.  "And obviously  they wouldn't have put as much thought and as much work into it as if they would have started it months in advance."
