The Exchange

Laura Knoy, September 21, 2009

A new task force backed by retired Supreme Court justice David Souter aims to teach more New Hampshire students about how government works and what rights and responsibilities Americans have under the Constitution. We'll hear from members of the task force and ask how and why they plan to boost the Granite State's civics curriculum.

Guests

Tom Galligan: president of Colby-Sawyer College and co-chair of the Civics Task Force at the New Hampshire Supreme Court Society

Mary Susan Leahy: attorney at the McLane Law Firm and coordinator of the Curriculum Project at the New Hampshire Supreme Court Society

John Hutson: Dean of the Franklin Pierce Law Center in Concord and co-chair of the Civics Task Force at the New Hampshire Supreme Court Society
