*What is the Constitution Challenge???
The Constitution Challenge is a multi-tiered educational curriculum that will use dramatized historical vignettes and a vibrantly fact-based approach to reacquaint American students with the beauty and complexity of our most important founding document. In collaboration with renowned Constitutional scholar, Stephen Pratt, authors Shad Olson and Zach Lautenschlager hope to create a work of lasting importance that will successfully marry the rollicking adventure tale quality of America’s earliest days, with the soul-searching intensity applied by the men who wrote the U.S. Constitution. Combined with an after school quiz bowl activity, and a similar study course geared to adult students in small group or Sunday school settings, the developers hope to bring the ‘Challenge,’ to a national audience. Large scale rallies in multiple cities with conservative radio host, Glenn Beck will serve as the rollout of the Challenge concept and offer funding opportunities to formulate the product.
“After five decades of cultural dominance by the secular-socialist agenda, people who are products of America’s public schools are largely unaware of what is unique about the Godly origins of our American freedom, and what will replace it if we allow it to be taken from us,” Shad Olson said.
“It’s our belief that students given proper instruction about the nature and basis of our founding will find it impossible to avoid an increased appreciation for the liberties we enjoy, and we believe that understanding will translate into a cultural shift of priority, time and attention.”
With numerous surveys indicating a pervasive lack of knowledge on even the most basic facts of American history, ‘Challenge,’ author and Tea Party Alliance President, Shad Olson, says allowing that ignorance to persist only deepens America’s vulnerabilities to elected leaders who value political ambition far more than their responsibility of protecting and upholding the Constitution. Presenting a rigorous learning opportunity from a Christian perspective is the goal of the project.
“Instilling a deeper love for liberty is the surest way to produce citizens who know how to hold their leadership accountable according to what the Constitution says they can and cannot do,” Olson said.
“The time is long overdue to begin an effort such as this.”
