Students March to the State Capitol

They may only be teens, yet they are taking a firm stand that Alabama's constitution needs to be updated.

Nearly 500 students from around the state converged on the State Capitol building in Montgomery to push for improving education, fairer taxation and a new constitution.

National teacher of the year winner, Betsy Rogers was on hand for the rally and she applauds the teens for involving themselves in Alabama's future.

Alabama lawmakers are considering a package of proposed amendments that would address severe problems with the state's constitution.

Alabama's current constitution dates back to 1901.
