Many students are taught social studies during their K-12 education. Unfortunately, such schooling often lacks any serious instruction about the constitutional framework of democracy, the rights and duties of American citizenship, and the means to become productive and self-sufficient in a free-market economy.
The Claremont Institute has developed a major new educational program to address this growing and urgent problem. The American Freedom Project in Civic and Economic Education will teach children the meaning of American citizenship and how to achieve economic success in a free society.
The first steps in this new program include the Alphabet of Economic Freedom and the Alphabet of Political Freedom. These two documents define key political and economic terms most useful to those learning what it means to be an American. The Political terms provide American citizens with a better understanding of the limitations the Founders placed upon the government in order to protect the rights and liberties of the people. The Economic terms demonstrates the rights and responsibility given to the citizenry in a limited government system.
