A federal law enacted in December 2004 designates September 17 as “Constitution and Citizenship Day,” to commemorate the signing of the United States Constitution on September 17, 1787. The federal law is included in Section 111 of Pub.L. 108-44 (Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005). It contains the following provision in Section 111 (b): “Each educational institution that receives Federal funds in the 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.

Parents, if you have a child in an educational facility receiving federal funding ask them what they were taught about the Constitution today.
