Celebrating our United States Constitution
Monday - September 13, 2010
An often overlooked occasion, Constitution Day, is the subject of this week's podcast. The question, "Should the children of illegal immigrants automatically be granted the right of citizenship in the United States?" will be the topic of discussion in the James Otis Lecture that will take place on the floor of the South Carolina House of Representatives. The Honorable Matthew J. Perry and other speakers will address high school students from across the state on Friday and our Speaking of Schools guests will also entertain that question and provide background information and preview the Lecture which will be televised by SCETV and made available to schools. Federal law requires all schools receiving federal assistance to have a program about the Constitution on or about the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution, September 17, 1787.
