Two organizations have joined forces to put together a course that will teach students about their individual rights before they enter college.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education and the Bill of Rights Institute have produced a new high school course titled "The College Bill of Rights." Robert Shibley of F.I.R.E. says the course informs students headed for college of their constitutional rights.

“We found that too many students are coming to college with no idea what their rights are and that is something of an indictment of civics education in the K-12 arena,” he tells OneNewsNow. “We’re trying to help remedy that with the release of this new curriculum.”

He says the course supplies everything teachers will need to teach students about the Bill of Rights.

“Students should have a basic idea when they go to college of First Amendment Rights, free speech, religious liberty, freedom to protest and freedom of assembly, because too many colleges are telling students they don’t have those rights, and on public campuses that’s simply not true,” he explains.

Those interested can access the course website at collegebillofrights.org. Those with SmartPhones can text rights31996 to learn more.
