Abstract

Congress recently enacted a statute requiring that every educational institutional that receives federal funding must hold a program about the Constitution in conjunction with Constitution Day. This very short comment, which arises from the author's effort to provide entertainment during his school's first Constitutional Day program, analyzes the legality of the statute under both the Constitution and constitutional law.

Keywords: spending, Byrd Amendment
