Federal law makes it mandatory for all schools to teach about the Constitution on Constitution Day, which is September 17, or during Constitution Week if it falls on a weekend, as it does this year. It would be a good idea for you to check with your local public school and see how they’re planning to comply with this federal law!
Our U.S. Constitution is the oldest and longest-lasting constitution in all the world's history! Every American should read it to understand why it is the fountainhead of our great liberties — religious, political, and economic. The Constitution is the instrument that has enabled America to grow and prosper, becoming the most powerful country in the world, while at the same time preserving individual freedoms. The American philosophy is that government is the servant of the people, not our master. President Ronald Reagan expressed this concept when he said that government is the problem, not the solution.
Phyllis Schlafly Eagles has a many splendid teaching tools that would be quite appropriate for schools to use during Constitution Week, and even for homeschoolers and adults, too! Phyllis Schlafly focused much of her lifetime of work on defending the U.S. Constitution. From her daily and weekly writings, to her books such as The Supremacists, to even study programs such as one on the courts using her Supremacists book – the brand new digital archives being built at www.PhyllisSchlafly.com contains some of the best information to help you celebrate this Constitution Week.
I highly recommend that you observe Constitution Week by inviting your friends to join you in discussions over Phyllis Schlafly’s body of work on the Constitution.Visit us online or give us a call to get your copies of Phyllis’s records, writings, books, and study guides! Especially in the era of rampant judicial activism, you must be ready to help us defend the Constitution! Join us tomorrow on this program as we discuss more of the history of our amazing founding document, and visit us online to find even more on this topic from Phyllis’s personal archives!
