TO MEMORIALIZE THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO REQUEST THAT PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN SOUTH CAROLINA REQUIRE THE CURRICULUM OF ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO INCLUDE, AMONG OTHER THINGS, STUDIES IN THE DUTIES AND OBLIGATIONS OF CITIZENSHIP.
Whereas, public school districts in South Carolina should encourage that the curriculum of all public schools include studies in the duties and obligations of citizenship and patriotism. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina request the Department of Education to encourage that all public school districts as a part of each school's annual curriculum provide that students be instructed in the duties and obligations of citizenship; the nature and values of patriotism, Americanism, and charitable volunteerism; the sacrifices made by veterans of the armed services of the United States; and respect for and obedience to the law.
Be it further resolved that instruction should also be encouraged to be given periodically in public schools about the history of the flags of the United States and South Carolina, what they represent, and the proper display thereof and respect therefor.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Education.
