This Day in Georgia History

August 20, 1923

Constitutional Education Required

Gov. Clifford Walker signed an act requiring that all schools and colleges in Georgia supported by public funds to provide instruction in the essentials of the U.S. and Georgia constitutions, and that no student could graduate without first passing an examination on the provisions and principles of both constitutions. The law had its intended impact, as civics textbooks began including entire chapters on the Georgia Constitution.
