Home Schooling Is The Best Educational Alternative
Ronald Ernest Paul (born August 20, 1935) is an American author, physician, and retired politician who served as the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 22nd congressional district from 1976 to 1977 and again from 1979 to 1985, and for Texas’s 14th congressional districtfrom 1997 to 2013. On three occasions, he sought the presidency of the United States: as the Libertarian Party nominee in 1988 and as a candidate in the Republican primaries of 2008 and 2012. Paul is a critic of the federal government‘s fiscal policies, especially the existence of the Federal Reserve and the tax policy, as well as the military–industrial complex, and the War on Drugs. He has also been a vocal critic of mass surveillance policies such as the USA PATRIOT Act and the NSA surveillance programs. He was the first chairman of the conservative PAC Citizens for a Sound Economy and has been characterized as the “intellectual godfather” of the Tea Party movement.
The February mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida prompted many parents to consider homeschooling. This is hardly surprising, as the misnamed federal “Gun-Free Schools” law leaves schoolchildren defenseless against mass shooters.
Removing one’s children from government schools seems a rational response to school shootings. But, school shootings are not the only form of violence causing more parents to consider homeschooling.
Many potential homeschooling parents are concerned about the failure of school administrators to effectively protect children from bullying by other students. But, more importantly, many parents choose homeschooling as a means of protecting their children from federal education “reforms” such as Common Core. Other parents are motivated by a desire to protect their children from the cultural Marxism that has infiltrated many schools.
(SN: I have the impression that most people who finished high school before 1969 have no idea how much schooling in their good old place has changed! Courses that were basic (Civics, Law, Home Economics, Wood and Metal Shop, teaching cursive writing as examples) are GONE and replaced by an effort to educate every child to fit into a new Communist society. The results of this are seen in the streets and general society today. College graduates since 2010 appear to be lost souls; incompetent, incapable of running their own lives, incapable of clear self analysis and social/political reasoning, man cannot read, write, or complete basic arithmetic problems. They believe God is a myth, morality is determined by the government, and that the system of governance that build the USA from the 1770’s until the 1950’s must be completely replaced…. buy by whom and how it will look after replacement they don’t know and can’t explain.)
The spread of cultural Marxism has contributed to the dumbing down of public education. Too many government schools are more concerned with promoting political correctness than ensuring that students receive a good education. Even if cultural Marxism did not dumb down education, concerns that government schools are indoctrinating children with beliefs that conflict with parents’ political, social, and even religious beliefs would motivate many families to homeschool.
Even when government schools are not intentionally promoting cultural Marxism or other left-wing ideologies – including transgenderism, they are still implicitly biased toward big government.
For example, how many government schools teach the Austrian economics explanation for the Great Depression – much less question the wisdom of central banking – or critically examine the justifications for America’s hyper-interventionist foreign policy?
(SN: Austrian School of Economics promotes a gold standard and honesty in money handling, and proves that creating money as computer notations, and loaning this money simply destroys/debases the buying power of your money, eventually destroying the entire economic system. This is what is meant by the phrase, “The money want broke.”)
Parents interested in providing their children with a quality education emphasizing the ideas of liberty should consider looking into my homeschooling curriculum.
The Ron Paul Curriculum provides students with a well-rounded education that includes rigorous programs in history, mathematics, and the physical and natural sciences. The curriculum also provides instruction in personal finance. Students can develop superior oral and verbal communication skills via intensive writing and public speaking courses. Another feature of my curriculum is that it provides students the opportunity to create and run their own internet businesses.
The government and history sections of the curriculum emphasize Austrian economics, libertarian political theory, and the history of liberty.
However, unlike government schools, my curriculum never puts ideological indoctrination ahead of education.
While government schools – and even many private schools – pretend that the Christian religion played no significant role in history, my curriculum addresses the crucial role it played in the development of Western civilization.
Interactive forums allow students to engage with and learn from each other. The forums ensure students are actively engaged in their education as well as giving them an opportunity to interact with their peers outside of a formal setting.
Concern about the safety of students in government-run schools is one reason many parents are considering homeschooling, but it is not the only reason.
Many parents are motivated by a desire to give their children something better than a curriculum that has been dumbed down by federal initiatives like Common Core. Other parents do not wish to have their children indoctrinated with views that contradict the parents’ political, social, or even religious beliefs.
I encourage all parents looking at alternatives to government schools – alternatives that provide children with a well-rounded education that introduces them to the history and ideas of liberty – to go to RonPaulCurriculum.com for more information about my homeschooling program.
