Are the principles of the U.S. Constitution reflected in your school?

Lesson Duration

By The Education Department, National Constitution Center

This research and deliberation activity encourages students to review principles of the U.S. Constitution and determine whether these principles are reflected in their schools. Through researching their own school policies and reviewing constitutional principles, students will better understand the functions of their school and any constitutional connections. Through deliberation, students can review why certain principles are found in the school system and why others are not, and if any principles need to be better incorporated.



The Exchange is the National Constitution Center’s nationwide conversation series on current constitutional issues.
