"Reviving our Constitution"... a wonderful online video resource (a freebie too)

Original post made by Sara on Aug 3, 2010

This is not likely covered in much detail in our local schools...nor is it required in most US colleges.

If you have time (about 60 min) here is a wonderful presentation on our US Constitution. And if you choose to view it, pass the word on ... especially to our Congressmen and women who have definitely NOT seen this!!! (Or if they have, they are trying to nullify it.)

Sara,

I encourage you to look into k-12 standards to see exactly at what grade level Constitutional studies are a part of an in depth curriculum. Web Link

On top of the years where the study is comprehensive, there is also mandatory education annually on Constitution Day- Sept. 17- for all k-university level classrooms since 1995. (except private schools) Web Link

Hope this clears up the misinformation you posted.
