    Public Schools and the Constitution

    I'd like to know how much you learned about the founding documents of the USA. This poll is for US citizens who went through the public school system only. Specifically, I'd like to know what documents you dedicated a significant amount of time and effort to learn about.

    It's good to know some public schools still care about their pupils.

    I assume you are talking about reading the actual text of each document? I learned about all of them in summary, but only was required to read and analyze the full text of the constitution and the declaration of independence.

    Well, the Federalist Papers are an extremely long read. I think the summary will do for that one.
