This year for the Fourth of July we asked readers a fundamental question:

“What would not seem to live up to the ideals of the declaration?”

We hope you’ll take the time to read the students’ thoughts:

We’re also sharing a First Amendment Quiz, a 20-question online test of your “Freedom IQ.”

Enjoy the holiday.
