Students to Observe Constitution Signing

Justice Learning

A new government mandate requires schools and colleges that receive federal funding to provide some sort of educational program on Constitution Day. That's the day of the Constitution's signing in 1787. The date is Sept. 17, which falls on a Saturday this year, so they're allowed to plan their events for Friday or early next week.
