NUMBER 296 THE NEWSPAPER OF EDUCATION RIGHTS SEPTEMBER 2010

Celebrate Constitution Day
In accordance with legislation passed in 2005, all federally funded schools and colleges must hold an education program about the United States Constitution on September 17th. It is perhaps a sign of our times that one of the most extensive and enthusiastic celebrations will occur at a school that accepts no federal or state funding. Hillsdale College will hold its first annual Constitution Day Colloquium over two days with eight lectures and panel discussions. Topics will include civil liberties and Islamic terrorism, free market regulation, Howard Zinn's influence on civic education, and a debate on constitutional interpretation. The events feature prominent speakers such as Victor Davis Hanson, George Will, former U.S. Congressman Bob Barr and Michigan Supreme Court justice Stephen Markman. The public is invited to participate via live webcast. Registration is free; visit www.hillsdale.edu for more information.
