Although I haven’t really looked into it, I just read about another reason to support Ron Paul’s educational curriculum that has homeschooling families talking. The Huffington Post doesn’t like it. That’s a pretty much good enough reason for me to at least look a little deeper right?

I think it’s funny that in the HuffPost article the writer says:

Critics like The Atlantic’s Philip Bump suggest the curriculum is simply another means to push Paul’s political views and pump out mini-Ron PaulsFox News is skeptical too.

Hmmm? Another case of do as I say, not as I do? Hasn’t public schooling been pushing a political agenda of their own against family, religious and moral values over the last few decades? I always thought it was funny how I would see students catching flack for a boldly morally uplifting shirt for pushing their beliefs on someone, but nobody ever really questioned the Slayer, Megadeth, Quiet Riot or Marilyn Manson t-shirts and what they promote. I remember one of my favorite shirts to wear when I was in school (and in public) was one my oldest brother got me that boldly said “PRACTICE SAFE SEX! – Get married and be faithful!”

Has anyone checked out The Ron Paul Curriculum in depth? From their website header, here are four key points it says students will learn that use the curriculum.

  1. Liberty vs. coercion in Western history
  2. How to defend the freedom philosophy
  3. What it takes for success in college
  4. How to start a home business – Ron Paul
