HB 588 (3R) - The Founding Principles Act

This bill requires local boards of education to implement a high school course that includes the teaching of the Creator-endowed inalienable rights of the people, structure of government, election system, importance of private property rights, due process, and federalism. The legislation also requires a passing grade in the course to graduate from high school. Civitas believes the conservative position is to promote the teaching of founding principles of limited government, individual freedom, personal responsibility and respect for the free market.
