Survey Finds First Amendment Is Being Left Behind in U.S. High Schools

A new national study, the largest of its kind, says America’s high schools are leaving the First Amendment behind.

Among its findings:

Nearly three-fourths of high school students either do not know how they feel about the First Amendment or admit they take it for granted.

Seventy-five percent erroneously think flag burning is illegal.

Half believe the government can censor the Internet.

More than a third think the First Amendment goes too far in the rights it guarantees.

They also have a Field Report, A Call To Action, and A Site Set Up to “help young Americans understand and practice their basic freedoms.”
