Constitute

OMGOMGOMG!  I love this.  I really hate how we teach so little about other countries.  Sure, we study Ancient Egypt and the political systems of the ancient Greeks and Romans, but we learn almost nothing about the rest of the world after 1776.  And we spend huge amounts of time studying our own modern history and government system, but never in a world context.  [OK, rant over]  Well, here’s a great tool for some comparative analysis of Constitutions.  On Constitute, you can read the Constitutions of the world.  Search by country or search on topics such as Citizen Duties, Economic Rights, Electoral Oversight, Structure of the Executive Branch and many more.  This could be the basis of an amazing High School Government study.  And it’s free!  Thanks, Google.
