About We the People

The We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution program promotes civic competence and responsibility among the nation’s upper elementary and secondary students.

We the People complements the regular school curriculum by providing elementary, middle, and high school students with an innovative course of instruction on the history and principles of U.S. constitutional democracy. Print textbooks, enhanced ebooks, interactive strategies, supplemental content, and simulated congressional hearings, all make the curriculum exciting for both teachers and students.

The program enjoys active support from state bar associations and foundations, as well as other educational, business, and community organizations across the nation. Since its inception in 1987 as the principal education program of the federal Constitution’s bicentennial, more than 30 million students and 75,000 educators have participated in We the People.
