EdWatch Presents

An evening with Constitutional Attorney Dr. John Eidsmoe
"What should schools teach about the U.S. Constitution?"

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is a new federal mandate:
 "Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day." (2005)
Former Gov. Jesse Ventura once stated that the U.S. Constitution means whatever the Supreme Court Justices say it means. Is that what students will be learning about the Constitution on Constitution Day? Or does the Constitution represent enduring principles?
