This Congressional initiative is
authorized by Section 111 of Division J
of Pub. L. 108–447, the ‘‘Consolidated
Appropriations Act, 2005,’’ Dec. 8,
2004; 118 Stat. 2809, 3344–45 (Section
111).

Federal law not just allows but in 2004 mandated by Congress the designation of this day to "Constitution Day and Citizenship Day" and added two new requirements in the commemoration of this Day.
“The first is that the head of every Federal agency provide each employee with educational and training materials concerning the Constitution on September 17th.”
“The second is that each education institution which receives Federal funds shall hold an educational program on the Constitution for students on September 17 of each year”.

By law the constitution should be taught in every school that receives federal funding on Friday Sept. 17th. Ask your children what they learned in school Friday. Find out what kind of role the Fed. Dept. of Ed. is taking in our schools. They are a federal agency and should supply the materials to their employees (teachers) I think you just might be surprised to find just what they will do in your local schools,

Better yet call your students school today and ask what they have planned for "Constitution Day and Citizenship Day" this Friday Sept. 17 2010.
