The Critical Need for a Renewed Focus on Social Studies Education


Read an interview with Dept. Supervisor, Robert Pollaro


Constitution Day

Over the summer of 1787, 55 men gathered in Philadelphia to alter the failing articles of Confederation. Instead, they created a new document that has become one of the greatest and most enduring political writings of human history. The United States Constitution was finished on September 17, 1787. This day has been designated as Constitution Day and is a time to reflect on a national symbol of freedom and justice that makes the United States of America unique.
