Written between October 1787 and August 1788, The Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explain the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections raised by its opponents. Thomas Jefferson described the work as “the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written.” This course will explore major themes of The Federalist Papers, such as the problem of majority faction, separation of powers, and the three branches of government.
The American Founders recognized the central importance of education for the inculcation of the kind of knowledge and character that is essential to the maintenance of free government. For example, the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 states, “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.” This course will consider the older understanding of the purpose of education, the more recent Progressive approach that has become dominant today, and some essential elements of K-12 education.
July 28 Meeting will feature Teresa Beckmeyer, West Texas Voice
Have you ever been going about your daily routine and all of a sudden, you find out that there is a new law that you are required to adhere to that you knew nothing about and had never even heard of? It seems as if it came out of the blue--it just appeared. Questions like: How did that happen? Where did it come from? Whose idea was that? all start swirling around in your head.
This is not an uncommon scenario. Many of us have had this happen. Many laws come about during session when lawmakers are in Austin busily doing the work of the people and most of the time, we do not even know what they are about or when they took effect. Some laws can help us, but some do not. Some cause undue hardships, higher taxes and many times, loss of freedom.
Teresa will inform us on just what really transpired during the 84th Texas Legislative session...on how Representative Drew Darby and Senator Charles Perry voted key legislation.
Plan to attend and get the real scoop, not just the politicians view of “what a good job I am doing for you”.
