Elementary Schools Are Teaching Kids How To Spot Fake News

Students arrive for class at Mahnomen Elementary School in Mahnomen, Minnesota September 26, 2013. The U.S. government may have headed off some of the most dire predictions about the "sequester," but over seven months, the across-the-board spending cut has thrown sand into the gears of the economic recovery. Mahnomen school district, which serves the White Earth Indian reservation in Minnesota, lost 3 percent of its funding due to the sequester. The district didn't replace a teacher who retired and has scaled back on homework tutoring and an alternative-school program for teenage mothers. Another year of cuts could force the school to lay off teachers and scale back bus service, superintendent Jeff Bisek says. To match Insight USA-BUDGET/SEQUESTER Picture taken September 26, 2013.
