State Rep. Dave Agema, R-Grandville, says kids are graduating from high school without a sound education in our constitutional underpinnings.
He and 22 Republican co-sponsors have introduced a bill mandating the Declaration of Independence, the Federalist Papers, the Anti-Federalist Papers, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights are taught in public schools.
I’m not sure what data he used to determine this, but some of this material is a skoch advanced. And with the education “reform” that this bigoted pig helped push through, our most experienced teachers might be pushed out the door. In short, the less experienced teachers with the larger class sizes will be the ones dealing with the mandate. Anyway, I’m sure the African-Americans and the women in the class will enjoy the refresher on the US Constitution (selected amendments aside).
His bill also calls for a daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. Similar measures have failed in the past, but Agema said he hopes tea party groups will push for passage.
And I’ve always thought that the best way to get minor children to prove their loyalty to their country is to force them to repeatedly say something.
