Should universities and colleges require students to learn about the Constitution?

In an effort to teach students to appreciate our democratic form of government, a public South Carolina university requires all students to take a three credit hour course in which students must demonstrate competency in their understanding of the principles and applications of the U.S. Constitution and related topics.

Dr. Daniel Mahony, President of Winthrop University, states “We want to make sure students understand American institutions and ideals and appreciate how their roles in school, work and community are affected by the structures and ideas emanating from these core documents. This knowledge also will help students understand their civic responsibilities and recognize problems and issues that confront citizens."

Would you agree with me that more colleges should follow the example of this public college?

I think it’s important to have an understanding of that which our country is founded on but I also thought this was a topic discussed in many middle school and high school US History courses. Reply

It is important, but it shouldn’t be an obligation. Reply
