Who is on this video? Bestselling author Tom Woods, who will teach history and government courses in the upper grades of the program. Also find Garry North in introduction.
Here, you and your children can get an education in liberty like no other. I invite parents to take courses and participate on forums — to get the education they never had. Parents do not pay for the individual courses that they purchase for their children.
Here, students learn the basics of Western Civilization and Western liberty — how it was won, how it is being lost, and how it will be restored. Students also learn the basics of American history, the United States Constitution, and American geography. 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. Students get mathematics, either through calculus or statistics or both. They get the basics of science: earth science, biology, chemistry, and physics.
A student who goes through this curriculum, kindergarten through high school, will have a mastery of the foundations of liberty. There is no other curriculum on the Web to match it.
It does not assign textbooks. This saves families a lot of money. Textbooks cost a great deal of money. Almost all of the materials are free: toner and paper only. The few exceptions are modern novels and a few classic books on liberty, such as Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom.
This curriculum is 98% self-taught above the 5th grade. Students teach themselves. Then they tutor each other.
Students start writing in the fourth grade. They do not stop until they graduate. I doubt that they will ever stop. Every high school student has to set up at least one website.
The curriculum centers around weekly essays. Parents should probably read them. If they want to grade them, that’s fine. If they don’t, that’s also fine.
No student who gets through this curriculum will ever need to be nagged to get through college, graduate school, or a career. This curriculum teaches self-discipline. This is a crucial personal habit. It is mostly internal. It develops after years of working in an environment that requires self-disciplne.
For students who hustle, they will enter college as juniors. They will quiz out of their first two years of college for about $2,500, total (today’s money, of course). They will get into the work force as college graduates two years before their peers do.
The man who teaches the public speaking course in grade 9 and the literature courses for grades 6 through 8 graduated from an accredited college on his 18th birthday. He paid for his own college education by working part time in his own home business. It cost him under $15,000. It can be done. I recommend it.
If you are a parent, this should get your attention. I think students should also be motivated. (I am assuming that students want to get out of school fast.)
Students will be taught the basics of video production, website design, and Internet marketing. A few of them will have profitable businesses by the time they are 16.
Isn’t that harsh? There are no free lunches.
Are your courses accredited? No. Why not? See the article I wrote on this. http://www.ronpaulcurriculum.com/public/124.cfm
Will my state’s home school regulators accept your courses as valid? Not if they’re smart. Our philosophic goal is to get their agencies shut down.
What if they come after us? Tell them that you have joined the Home School Legal Defense Association. Go here: http://www.hslda.org
What will I have to do to teach my kids after they go into sixth grade? Nothing.
What about reading their essays? That would be nice. Call it “extra credit.”
What if my child gets stuck? Other students on the forums will help out.
How many hours a day should my child devote to the curriculum? For teenagers, 90 minutes per day per course: lectures and reading. It’s less than a public school day: school, bus time, and homework.
How can I be sure that my child is learning the material? Read the weekly essays. The students are required to post them on their blogs.
What if I don’t know enough to evaluate the essays? Take the course. It’s free to parents.
What if I am too busy to take the course? Then you should teach your child everything, the way most homeschool parents do.
Where will I get the time? You need my time-management lessons. They are part of my “Preparation for High School” course.
