Why Do So Few Colleges and Universities Require Coursework in U.S. History and Government?

James Wilson, a founding father from Pennsylvania, once said that “[l]aw and liberty cannot rationally become the objects of our love, unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.”

And, yet, according to the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, the following colleges and universities do not have a U.S. Government or History requirement. Is your alma mater on this list? I’m ashamed to admit that mine is.

We need to prioritize history and civics education not only K-12, but also in institutions of higher learning. The health of the Republic depends on it!
