Public Schools Must Teach The History Of The Constitution TodayPosted by Scott @ 10:06 pm
Constitution Day is observed each year on September 17, the day our framers, while attending the Constitutional Convention, signed the Constitution in 1787.
Prior to 2004, the holiday was known as “Citizenship Day”. In 2004, congress enacted a bill renaming the holiday “Constitution Day”. The act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions teach the history of the American Constitution on this day.
Did your child’s school teach the constitution today or was it ignored? It’s up to parents to demand our public schools teach children what it means to be an American. Everyone should speak with their children’s teachers and principals to ensure the constitution is not being ignored.
In these troubled and uncertain times, it is more important than ever that we remember what it means to be an American. We must teach our children the values and ideals our founding fathers held so dearly, the principles of individual liberty, freedom and self-reliance that has made the United States the greatest country the world has ever known.
The last line in the Declaration of Independence articulates key principles we should all strive to uphold.
“..with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”
