California Schools Making Federalist Papers Mandatory

In a bid to enhance California youth’s understanding and perception on how the founding fathers saw the Federal Government’s role in its citizens’ lives, California is making the study of the Federalist Papers mandatory in all California schools. The hoped for outcome is that students will be able measure the degree in which the Federal Government acts within the bounds of its intended role and of course be able to note when it steps beyond it.

The Federalist Papers were written by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay.  The  Papers had great influence over the Founding Fathers’ attitudes on the role of National government in the you republic.  This is most obvious in the 10th Amendment, which reads: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states, respectively, or to the people.”

The fact that California chose to make the study of the Federalist Papers mandatory shows the significance they still have in shaping modern views on States’ Rights and Federal Jurisdiction.
