                               RESOLUTION


 
  Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding the 
     importance of effective education in civics and government in 
        elementary and secondary schools throughout the Nation.

Whereas research shows that too few people in the United States understand the 
        basic principles and functions of our constitutional government as set 
        forth in the founding documents of our Nation, the Declaration of 
        Independence and the Constitution; and
Whereas since the founding of public education, elementary and secondary school 
        education programs have had the mission of preparing students who are 
        committed to the values and principles of the United States to 
        participate in our constitutional government: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives encourages--
            (1) elementary and secondary schools to promote competent 
        and responsible civic participation in the American political 
        system;
            (2) States and local governments to develop, implement, and 
        strengthen programs and curriculum to teach civics, government, 
        and American history at the elementary and secondary school 
        levels; and
            (3) elementary and secondary schools to promote current 
        event discussions, participate in simulations of the democratic 
        process, and incorporate education in civics and government 
        into the core curriculums of math, science, and language arts.
                                 <all>
