“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction.”
— Ronald Reagan
Reagan’s sentiment is exactly why we work so hard to make sure students understand our nation’s history and their place in its future.
Clearly, civics and character education must be taught in schools. They don’t happen automatically. And they won’t happen by chance.
However, the amazing teachers on the front lines of teaching our children face time constraints and monumental budget cuts. And, by consequence or coincidence, students know more about pop culture icons than they do about their country.
Now, if today’s students don’t understand their roles as citizens, how will they understand their roles in continuing the American Dream?
Luckily, passionate Americans, just like you, are taking matters into their own hands. You have donated hundreds of Super Citizen Program Resource Kits to schools in Alabama and beyond. Your support has ensured that thousands of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders learn value freedom and strong character.
In short, you are teaching, inspiring and empowering the educated, engaged and outstanding citizens who will become The Next Great Americans.
This is just the beginning of an incredibly ambitious and crucial mission. Thank you for your help!
