regular session convened this
9th day of March, 1953
1. That the Nebraska Depart
ment of The American Legion
reaffirms its faith in the effec
tiveness of the citizenship edu
cation carried on in Nebraska's
schools, colleges and universi
ties. We believe that training
future citizens is one of the ma
jor responsibilities of all educa
tional institutions. The Legion
commends the educational lead
ership of Nebraska for the
steady and continuing work in
the schools and colleges which
instills basic loyalties to Ameri
can ideals by presenting chal
lenging study of the Declaration
of Independence and our state
and national constitutions, by
teaching American history and
literature, by teaching our na
tional anthem, by commemorat
ing the lives of our national
heroes, by recognizing our na
tional holidays, by presenting
the problems and issues of our
state and nation by open dis

the members of the teaching
professions and their organiza

rendered to the Americanism

ment of The American Legion
commends the school boards,
trustees and regents of our edu
cational system in Nebraska for
their careful selection of teach
ers, faculties and administrators
who are loyal to American
premises of liberty. The Legion
reaffirms its faith In the aca

education study, the Legion hopes
to "study and diffuse current de
velopments in citizenship educa
tion," according to the education
This report also states that "Th
American Legion believes that
good citizenship is the most im
portant goal of education."
Though the content of Kellogg's
study will be entirely determined
by himself and his advisor Dr.
Knapp, the Legion education com
mittee plans to prepare a bulletin
describing "the best practices re
vealed by the study." The bul
letin would be made available to
Legion posts and school officials
of Nebraska, according to the
education committee's report.
Dr. Knapp said that one of the
case studies which will probably
be included in Kellogg's thesis is
the Nebraska Citizenship Project.
For four years this project has
helped schools develop and im
prove their programs of citizen
ship education, Dr. Knapp pointed
In working with schools and
community groups, the Nebraska
Citizenship Project work has co
operated with the American Le
gion and other agencies interested
in citizenship, Dr. Knapp said.
At Legion-sponsored Boys fatatt
last spring, the Citizenship Proj
ect introduced a "Nebraska Prob
lem Study," which Dr. Knapp
said "focused boys' attention on
the real problems of Nebraska."
An example of the type oi worn
which Kellogg will study, Dr.
Knapp said, is the Citizenship
Project's pre-school workshop
conducted in Grand Island. Dr.
Knapp pointed out that Grand Is
land's program instituted citizen
ship education in every subject
and activity from kindergarten to
the twelfth grade.
"Citizenship, as denned by tne
Grand Island board of education,
is based on seven goals coopera
tion, tolerance, spiritual values,
responsibility, knowledge, politi
cal citizenship and self-development.
Through "diffusing develop
ments" of such programs, the Le
gion said it hopes to "encourage
schools to further improve their
