Former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul recently announced on his weekly news broadcast (audio below) and on Facebook that he would be launching his own home schooling program, reports DailyCaller.com.
When Paul was running for president, he called for ending five federal government departments, including the Department of Education, reported CNSNews.com.
“I am pleased to announce my new website: RonPaulCurriculum.com which will feature an online home school curriculum for students K-12…. be sure to tell your family and friends!” Paul wrote on his Facebook page.
Paul lists the following courses on his website: "Liberty vs. coercion in Western History, How to defend the Freedom Philosophy, What it takes for success in college and How to start a home business."
“Students also learn the basics of American history, the United States Constitution, and American geography.” the site also states. “They get two courses on free market economics. They get two courses on government, including a how-to course on reclaiming America, one county at a time.”
Paul slammed public education in his audio address.
“A common feature of authoritarian regimes is the criminalization of alternatives to government-controlled education,” claimed Paul. “Dictators recognize the danger that free thought poses to their rule, and few things promote the thinking of 'unapproved' thoughts like an education controlled by parents instead of the state... Children do better when their education is controlled by those who know their unique needs best, rather than by a federal bureaucrat.”
