A Curriculum That Students Teach to Each Other

Ron Paul
Printer-Friendly Format

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.

The curriculum is mostly self-taught. If a student gets stuck, he can get help from other students on the course Q&A forums. Older students serve as tutors for younger students. They learn by teaching, which is a great way to master any new field.

This curriculum teaches people how to write. The main teachers in the social sciences and humanities, Dr. Gary North and Dr. Tom Woods, are both successful writers. They are both successful businessmen. They will teach your children how to write effectively and fast.

Here is why your child needs a self-taught curriculum. (If you are already persuaded, you can skip this presentation. Keep reading. But this does give a good overview of how my curriculum works.)

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 $3,000, 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 $12,000. 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.)

I launched this site three months after my final day in Congress.

Under Congressional rules, I could not operate a business, even an educational one, while I was a member of Congress. So, I am catching up fast.

BENEFITS AND COSTS

What Does the Ron Paul Curriculum Cost?

The Ron Paul Curriculum offers two distinct programs, one for K-5 and another for 6-12. The pricing for each program is different.

Grades K-5

The curriculum for grades K-5 is completely FREE. The curriculum will be made available on the website free of charge.

The free option only grants access to the curriculum itself. You will not have access to the various member boards and forums.

The advantage of becoming a paying member is that you will have access to all of our boards, discussion forums, customer service, etc.

Grades 6-12

For grades 6-12 there are two separate expenses for each student: (a) tutorial forums; (b) courses.

Tutorial forums. Access to the forums and the courses costs $250 per family. The flat rate of $250 is for 365 days. (I ask that you do not share the password with people not in your immediate family.)

Courses. Each course costs $50 per student. This is per student, not per family. But parents are encouraged to study the course alongside any of their children, as in any homeschool curriculum. Parents are free. Siblings are not.

RPC does not sell the courses apart from membership. You must belong to the site in order to get the videos of the courses. The videos are not available to the general public.

Because the courses are video-based, and because these videos are not on YouTube or any video hosting service available to the general public, you must have a high speed Internet connection. The lessons must be viewed online. This is the arrangement I have negotiated with the course providers. This curriculum is not suitable if you do not have a high speed Internet connection.

If you have any questions, read frequently asked questions.

My suggestion: use the first name of your son or daughter, with the letter of your last name, e.g. chuckd or Sallyb.

Today, the following courses are available: English: grades 6, 7, 9, 10, 11; history: grades 6, 7, 10 (Western Civilization, Part 1); math: grades 6, 7, 8 (which begins algebra), 9; science: grades 6, 7, 8, 9 (physical science), 10 (biology), 11 (chemistry); public speaking; government; economics; personal finance.

Every course comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee. Read my guarantee here. This gives the student plenty of time to take the "ABC course" -- the Academic Boot Camp. Mastering the techniques presented in this course is important for academic success -- the earlier, the better.

When this curriculum is finished, which I hope will be in December 2015, it will be kindergarten through 12th grade.

The courses from kindergarten through the 5th grade are free. I want to help homeschool families get started. Parents will not enroll their children. The courses will be available to everyone for free. The details are here.

Once families recognize the value of my program, K-5, I think 80% of them will sign up for the next six years.

If parents want to participate in the K-5 forums for parents, they will have to join the site: $250 (one fee for both parents). But this is not required.

The curriculum is mostly self-taught. If a student gets stuck, he can get help from other students on the course Q&A forums. Older students serve as tutors for younger students. They learn by teaching, which is a great way to master any new field.

This curriculum teaches people how to write. The main teachers in the social sciences and humanities, Dr. Gary North and Dr. Tom Woods, are both successful writers. They are both successful businessmen. They will teach your children how to write effectively and fast.

What if you want to take a course on your own -- no children? It will cost you $50. But if you have paid for one of your children to take it, it's free to you for the full year of the course.

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.

One more time: if you have any questions, read frequently asked questions.
