   13         Civic literacy.—As education is essential to the
   14  preservation of the rights and liberties of the people, the
   15  legislature shall provide by law for the promotion of civic

   17  education understand and are prepared to exercise their rights
   18  and responsibilities as citizens of a constitutional democracy.
