Hillsdale College Opens Constitution Course to the Public — For Free!

I read this information today and sent out in my daily 'tids'.  What gave me hope is the statement that the course was offered because "people asked for it".  I think we could all benefit from the class and hopefully, when finished would be able to express ourselves with added knowledge.

Hillsdale College Opens Constitution Course to the Public — For Free!

The Michigan-based college is offering a free, online 10-week course beginning Feb. 20. Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution sets out to provide participants with an understanding and ability to defend the “timeless principles of liberty” upon which the nation was founded.

In an interview with The Blaze, Dr. David Bobb — director of Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship located in Washington, D.C. — said the impetus for the course was first and foremost because people had asked for it.

“There are people who love this country but can’t explain why,” Bobb said. “We want to try and give them that ability.”

The course is designed such that a lecture will be posted online on Monday. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions virtually with answers being provided on Wednesday during a Q&A session. In addition to lectures, excerpts from primary documents will be provided and participants will be quizzed on their knowledge.

With George Washington’s birthday coming within the next week, Bobb calls to mind the appropriate nature that this course should be launching around that time.

“Without George Washington you may very well not have the Constitution,” he said. “You may not have the Constitutional Republic for which the U.S. Constitution now stands.”

No credit is provided for this course. Learn more and/or register for the course here. Although the course is offered free of charge, Arnn writes that the class cost nearly $1 million to produce and notes that the college is accepting donations of support.

Hey....we should all become 'experts' in the Constitution. Barry supposedly is one. Maybe we could beat him at his own game.

Yes, O is sooooo good at it, that in 3 short years he tried his best to wipe out as much of it as possible! Just think what he could do provided he has 4 more years!
