September 17th, 2013, Constitution Day, and coincidentally the official release date of former Congressman Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul’s new book, The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System. The good doctor’s book release is another great accomplishment in his distinguished career. And it could quite possibly be a milestone that marks the coming change, the revolution, as it were, to education in America. It comes on the heels of the launching of his website www.RonPaulCurriculum.com which is an online resource of curriculum for home-schoolers with students in grades K-12. Together, the new book and the home school curriculum will revolutionize the way many parents view and approach the education of their children.
Although, I have yet to read the book, we have pre-ordered 20 copies to share. Our goal is to use Dr.Paul’s book to open minds, spark discussions, and help other parents free their children from the slavery of compulsory, government education. Dr. Thomas E. Woods who has worked closely with Dr. Paul developing the home school curriculum recently shared his thoughts on Dr. Paul’s latest release in his article titled, “The Central Ingredient in the Ron Paul Revolution”
Dr. Paul has long contended that education has always been more important to him than politics. He has stressed for years that the most important thing that we can do is educate ourselves, our family, our friends, and neighbors. Studying the theories of Austrian Economics, seeking the truth when studying history, and understanding and being able to articulate the political philosophy of libertarianism, are worthy pursuits in the quest for knowledge. Sharing the ideals of liberty and guiding others to explore the benefits of voluntarism, as we work towards a free and truly voluntary society, may be the most important individual contribution we all can make. I encourage all readers of this article and lovers of liberty to follow Dr. Paul’s sound advice, read his new book, and consider homeschooling your children and grandchildren in an effort to lead us to a freer society.
