Franke: The Constitution’s ‘Selective Incorporation’
Every spring I have the opportunity to serve as a judge in the American Legion’s national oratorical contest. This contest began in 1938 to encourage knowledge of the Constitution among high school students. Contestants are sponsored by local American Legion posts and compete at ascending levels beginning with the district, zone and state levels. State winners compete at the national level. More than $200,000 in scholarships are awarded each year across the levels.

Isn’t it ironic that at the same time we’re trusting (and seemingly expecting) teachers to become expert marksmen and protect our children from bad actors armed with “assault weapons,” we don’t trust them to choose age-appropriate books for their classrooms?
