23. A Free Society Cannot Survive as a Republic Without a Broad Program of General Education.

The Founders supported public education. That included instruction on the Constitution and even the Bible. My personal opinion is that in Middle School or High School there should always be a required course on The Constitution of The United States of America. There should also be an elective course in High School on “Religions of the World.” It is unfortunate that many of the leaders in our public school system associate these subjects with political indoctrination rather than education.

Return to Founding Principles...
