The signing of a new law by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on June 1 made it so that students in her state must be taught about the U.S. 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.”
Said areas of study must now be added into the state’s various social studies programs, according to The Daily Signal.
The law also requires that the State Department of Education report to legislators every two years to inform them of how exactly they are teaching the founding documents in their classrooms.
“These works tell us about the nature of our country, the principles for which we stand, and the way to preserve our constitutional order,” Arthur Milikh, associate director for principles and politics at The Heritage Foundation, remarked in an email. “Should these texts be lost to students, the next generation will be ruled entirely by popular culture and public opinion.”

Unfortunately, it might already be too late for millennials, given all the liberal dogma that has been fed to them for years by the Marxists hiding in our education system.
The next generation, however, may still have a chance, assuming other governors follow Haley’s lead and implement similar measures in their own states.
Future generations of young Americans desperately need to be given a thorough education on how our country was formed and what makes it so exceptional. Unfortunately, this bill only applies to high school and thus not colleges, but still — it’s one hell of a step in the right direction!
