The Constitution of the United States


by Nicholas Murray Butler 1925

There is no subject with which Education Week could more properly or more significantly begin than that of the Constitution of the United States.

There has been a new interest in the Constitution of the United States since the World War, because in the overthrow of governments, of dynasties and of empires that accompanied and followed that war, there has been a new searching of heart as to the foundations of civil government and the establishment of principles of civil and political liberty among men; and, naturally, the two great landmarks to which men have turned are the Constitution of the British Empire and the Constitution of the United States.
