I taught the Constitution to high school students all day today.Submitted by amc1953 on Tue, 09/17/2013 - 17:14
The Constitution was signed September 17, 1787.
Today is Constitution Day, and any school that takes federal money is supposed to teach about the Constitution today.
I am a high school math teacher but I did not ask anyone's permission. I just taught the Constitution all day in every class. I printed out a copy of the Constitution for all my students to look at so they would know I was not twisting it's meaning. I spent a little extra time on the fact that only congress can declare war, the 2nd Amendment and the Fourth Amendment.
I also pointed out that the federal government really has no authority to regulate education and only does so through bribery.
Somehow the conversation drifted to the Federal Reserve and the gold standard a few times. My students were woefully ignorant about the Constitution and their government. I hope I enlightened a few of them and spurred their interest in defending the Constitution.
