Today, September 17, is the anniversary of the day in 1787 when the Constitution was signed. In honor of this, Constitution Day is also known as Citizenship Day in recognition of all those who have become citizens of the United States since the Constitution was signed. With Election Day coming up quickly, this day serves not only as a celebration, but as an important reminder of the responsibilities of citizenship.
As Election Day approaches, it is our civic responsibility to be educated and informed on the issues before heading to the polls. Remember: as citizens and special educators it is our job to educate AND participate! To that end, CEC is providing you with a guide to election issues in this election. CEC’s I Educate, I Participate: 2012 Presidential Election Voter Education Guide is your one stop shop for education issues in this election. It has everything from classroom resources to candidates’ positions and includes information on voter registration deadlines, how to find your polling place and where you can get your political news. Use this guide to keep in mind your students and your schools as you head to the polls on Tuesday, November 6.
