Ron Paul launches home-school course on Constitution

Story Topics

Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, libertarian extraordinaire, may have given up his congressional pin, but he’s far from removed from the political arena. He’s launched a new project aimed at providing home-schoolers with historically accurate information on the U.S. Constitution.

RonPaulCurriculum.com includes the “basics of Western Civilization and Western liberty,” the site touts, as The Blaze reported. Among the teachings: geography, history, math, science, economics and the U.S. Constitution.

The courses are self-guided, so students can progress at their own speed.

Mr. Paul said on his website: “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.”

The courses are low-cost; few textbooks or written materials are required. And students are able to get help via an active Q&A forum on the site, with older students serving as quasi-tutors to the newer students.
