Santorum was speaking to the Story County GOP Central Committee in Iowa, and referenced a report that found that only 13% of high school seniors nationally are proficient in history. Only 22% of fourth-grade students and 18% of eighth-graders were proficient.

"How can we be a free people?" Santorum asked. "How can we be a people that fight for America if we don't know who America is or what we're all about?"

Watch:

Santorum has previously alleged that the idea of climate change is also a liberal "scheme" to get more government regulation.
