This week Americans celebrated “Constitution Day”—the day on which we recognize the adoption of the United States Constitution. Constitution Day is observed on September 17, because delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787.

It appears that our state teachers’ union doesn’t understand that Washingtonians have two constitutions that guide our public behavior, both our state constitution and the U.S. Constitution. The one celebrated on Constitution Day is, in fact, the U.S. Constitution.
Ladies and gentlemen, the “adults” at the WEA providing evidence as to why charter schools in our state are so desparately needed.
