Students view the Constitution

I had the immense pleasure of visiting Medfield High School in order to discuss the ideas in the book, which had been assigned. I thoroughly enjoyed the three classes that I met, and it was extremely interesting to hear the reactions to the ideas. I have to say at the outset that all of the comments, without exception, were at least as cogent and to the point as any I have received from other audiences, which have usually been considerably older and, at least formally, "better educated."

I'm hoping that the students (and others) will take this opportunity to continue the conversation. There is almost literally no group I'm more interested in hearing from, precisely because they (you) will inherit the country that is shaped, for good and for ill, by the Constitution.
