PostSubject: Schools and the Constitution   Fri Dec 20, 2013 8:05 am

" Each year in September, students in schools across the land observe Constitution Day.

Usually it falls on Sept 17, and public schools are required by law on that day to

include lessons on the study and history of the U.S. Constitution in their curriculum.

  The observance became law thanks to a 2004 amendment by the late Sen.  Robert C.  Byrd."  

This is from the Metro Putnam

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This part is from the Constitution itself.

  Let's start with the BILL OF RIGHTS

  We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more

perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity,

provide the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and

secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do

ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 
The first ten Amendments belong to the People, That's us.

PostSubject: Third Amendment ( Quartering Soldiers )   Mon Dec 23, 2013 5:22 pm

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house,

without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a

manner to be prescribed by law.


Note: There has been no judicial explication of this amendment and it
was obviously one guarantee of the preference for the civilian over
the military.

PostSubject: TENTH Amendment ( reserved powers )    Tue Dec 24, 2013 3:13 pm

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,

nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States

respectively, or to the people.




Talk to your teacher concerning these rights. If you think for any reason that

your teacher is not answering your questions, just keep up with this post and there will

be much help for you to understand better.


EVERY ONE OF US SHOULD KNOW OUR RIGHTS, EVERY ONE.
