Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,.......

In 2012, Governor Kasich signed the Founding of America Documents Curriculum Bill into law, requiring the teaching of the Founding Documents in the Ohio classroom from the 4-12 grades, with an end of course exam on the high school level.  This curriculum is now in its 5th year of implementation. The Founding of America Documents Curriculum Bill was an initiative of the Ohio Christian Alliance. We are pleased that Ohio children are learning more about our American founding as a result of this educational requirement.  We will present a progress update of how the various school districts throughout the state are faring in reaching the benchmarks of the requirement of teaching the Founding Documents in American Government and History standards in the Ohio classroom. 

The requirement lists the teaching of The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution, the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers, The Northwest Ordinance, and The Ohio Constitution.
