Why isn't the Constitution read in schools any more?

This survey is pretty depressing, even if it is not surprising.

A wide majority of Americans know the U.S. Constitution is important, but less than one-third of them say they've taken the time to read the entire thing. . . . only 28 percent say they've read all of the document, and 14 percent say they've read most of it . . .

Given how short the constitution is, how is it possible that schools can only justify people reading secondary discussions and never the original document?

Professor Lott,

Liberals don’t like what the Constitution says; they don’t WANT children to read it.
