Tea Party Group Works To Bring Constitution To Schools
A national tea party group wants a conservative publishing house in Idaho to teach America’s kids about the U.S. Constitution this coming school year. (the Georgia-based Tea Party Patriots, told members this month to remind teachers of a 2004 federal law requiring public schools to teach Constitution lessons every Sept. 17, commemorating the day the document was signed. Critics however say they troubled by the push because the publisher of the materials, the National Center for Constitutional Studies, Based in Malta Idaho, promotes the Constitution as a divinely inspired document. A tea party official responded, saying, “they’re eliminating God out of the whole political discussion 100 percent, which is going to the other extreme.”
Coming up Friday morning, the Director of the National Center for Constitutional Studies will be our guest on Top Story during the 9:00 hour. We’ll get his response to the brew ha and find out more about the little center that is making such a huge impact.
