- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Rep. Wes Keller wants to make sure every secondary school in the state teaches its students about the U.S. Constitution. HB31 would require schools to develop curriculum segment on American constitutionalism. Keller says the bill would let superintendents decide the length and credit value of the course in their respective districts. Students who don't complete the course wouldn't be allowed to receive their diploma. An approved syllabus must ensure an understanding of American constitutionalism through "historical documents produced in the founding of our constitutional republic model of government." The bill was advanced by the House Education Committee on Wednesday. HB31 now goes to the House Finance Committee.
