This publication, based upon research, brings to the school administrator, the teacher, or the layman an opportunity to further understand these ideals and principles. It presents a concise analysis and compilation of State laws which require instruction in schools concerning the ideals and principles of American government, including Federal and State constitutions, American history, the teaching of patriotism, and matters related to American freedom.
