SC Just Passed Law FORCING Students To Know US History, Liberals FURIOUS!

Edmund Burke once famously said “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” And that is apparently the very wise position of the state of South Carolina. They have recognized that this great nation cannot be preserved unless our children learn who we are from our founding documents. Read on for details.

From Weasel Zippers:

Via The Daily Signal:

Gov. Nikki Haley, a Republican, signed a South Carolina House bill into law that implements the study of U.S. founding documents into the state’s public high schools.

The South Carolina Founding Principles Act requires the study of the United States Constitution, the Federalist Papers, and “the structure of the government and the role of separation of powers and the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights” to be added into statewide social studies programs.

This bill, signed June 1, reinforces South Carolina’s Section 59-29-120 that required all public education students, both in high school and in college, to pass a test after a year-long class on the founding documents and principles.

The Founding Principles Act bolsters the existing law by adding an accountability clause requiring the State Department of Education to report to the House and Senate Education Committees as well as the Public Works Committee every two years. This report will outline how South Carolina educators are teaching the documents in their classrooms.

State Rep. Chip Huggins, R-Lexington, told The Daily Signal, “I was just so worried about the erosion away from our foundation, and when I say that, I think it’s time we get back to the basics. The basics in which this country was founded. That’s exactly what we wanted to accomplish with this bill.”

Furthermore, teachers will be provided with “professional development opportunities” to ensure the subject is being properly taught.

A people who are educated on the founding tenets of freedom are far less likely to be hoodwinked by Liberalism. And this scares Liberals because they know that when enough young folks learn the truth, their monopoly on the minds of young Americans will come to end. Good job South Carolina!
