Free Constitution Day Event Celebrates ‘An Exceptional Constitution for an Exceptional People’

Did you know that Constitution Day is a federal holiday that celebrates the day the Constitution Convention signed the Constitution on September  17th, 1987? Did you know that since 2005 all educational institutions that are publicly funded are mandated to provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day?

Homeschool families are invited to attend a Constitution Day program at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at the JA World Huzienga Building on the Broward College campus.

The program will feature David Azerrad, a Constitutional scholar at the Heritage Foundation in Washington. Interestingly, David is a French-Canadian who marvels at the American system. He will be giving a presentation that went over very well with Orlando-area homeschoolers last year.

While David’s presentation will be the main attraction, our program will also include a short film about a Florida homeschooler who earned and saved enough from her used goods business to buy a house! She now has tenants more than twice her age paying her rent each month. (In addition to promoting founding principles, JMI encourages youth entrepreneurship – indeed, we sponsored the Student Entrepreneurs exhibit at this year’s FPEA Convention.)
