Committing to Civic Education

Nebraskan students should have a thorough knowledge of the US Constitution, appreciate its value, and be able to defend its meaning and purpose. Nebraska Revised Statute 79-724 states, "It is the responsibility of society to ensure that youth are given the opportunity to become competent, responsible, patriotic, and civil citizens to ensure a strong, stable, just, and prosperous America. Such a citizenry necessitates that every member thereof be knowledgeable of our nation's history, government, geography, and economic system. The youth in our state should be committed to the ideals and values of our country's constitutional republic established by the people." Our schools should adhere to these important necessities.
