Constitution Café is a space dedicated to the Jeffersonian idea of democratic freedom. Thomas Jefferson derided those who looked at constitutions “like the ark of the covenant, too sacred to be touched.” He believed that such people “ascribe to the men of the preceding age a wisdom more than human.”  To him, “We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.” (read more)
A San Antonio area school district explores how they've adapted Constitution Café in their district:
This video documents the recurring event known to East Central ISD as Constitution Cafe. This event allows students to come together with other students, as well as members of the faculty, staff, and administration, to have thought provoking conversations about pressing, real world topics.
Why not go view their short video introduction to this powerful concept and vote for them? They are competing as part of Follet Challenge program, which recognizes schools.
