We the People.

This issue spotlights our yearlong "We the I People" civics program. You will find an American history play on the drafting of the U.S. Constitution, followed by an article that examines the constitutional challenges we face today.

Our cover story examines the plight of children in Kenya whose families cannot afford to send them to school and who must work all day harvesting coffee and other crops.

Your Students Have a Voice

One of your students could be part of our Junior Scholastic Student Advisory Board. Information about joining this board is on page 25. Students who are accepted will have their photo published in JS, receive a Student Advisory Board T-shirt, and may be contacted for their opinions on issues involving teens.

Students can also have their voices heard on our Letters page. Turn to page 25 for student opinions on a range of topics.

How are we doing so far this year? We hope you will let us know by completing the Teacher Survey that was included with our October 4 issue. We value your comments and suggestions!
