Do You Offer a Certificate?
Any school that offers a certificate comes under government regulation in many states. The Ron Paul Curriculum is not going to submit to this.
As a curriculum, the program is protected by the First Amendment. It can teach whatever it wants. As soon as it says "certification," First Amendment liberties disappear. We are not going to surrender this liberty.
The lust for certification is first cousin to the lust for accreditation. It begs the state to certify both the curriculum and the student's performance.
Certified to do what? Can he read and write? Yes. Can he do advanced math? Yes. Will someone hire him? Yes. Are there accredited colleges that will accept CLEP and DSST exams from an uncertified student? Yes. Can the student earn a bachelor's degree? Yes.
Yet we find some parents desperate for certification. They will let their children study what they know is a third-rate curriculum in order to get certification. Why? Because they think that without an official seal of approval, their children cannot advance organizationally. So, they put them in a program that keeps them from advancing intellectually.
If you need a certificate, contact the Home School Legal Defense Association. It provides certification if students have met basic standards.
