Preserving our constitutional freedoms requires each generation of citizens to understand the Constitution’s purposes and principles. Correspondingly, ignorance of the Constitution represents a threat to our constitutional freedoms. Hillsdale College requires its students to complete a one-semester course on the Constitution. Through its Barney Charter School Initiative, Hillsdale is helping launch and providing guidance to classical K-12 charter schools nationwide—all of which provide their students a proper understanding of American history and government. Today, we are asking you what you think of the quality of civics education in your state and community. Feedback from its friends nationwide will help Hillsdale shape its strategy as it expands its educational outreach to millions more Americans.
