Who's in violation here? 

Scholar's Notebook points out that we are supposed to teach the Constitution, but that Senator Byrd's amendment may be itself unconstitutional. He points out, interestingly, that the latest omnibus education bill in Minnesota explicitly permits teachers to use original documents, even if they have that pesky G_d word in them. Cheri Yecke, meanwhile, reminds us that the pesky democracy word isn't.

I wonder if our Democratic Citizenship course understands those points?
