Put Constitution on $1 bill ? or just First Amendment?
For five years, Wright and his students at Liberty Middle School in Hanover, Va., have been trying to interest Congress and the Treasury Department in redesigning the back side of $1 bills to include the preamble to the U.S. Constitution and a summary of all the Constitution's provisions. The idea is to educate the public about the Constitution, the founding document of the nation, which is vastly more important than the better-known Declaration of Independence.
Now this is a good idea. It might or might not work, but we have to print the money anyway, so we may as well use it for educational purposes. There's a web site for the people proposing the program at http://www.libertydollarbill.org/.
