The curriculum features three tracks: natural science/math, social sciences/humanities, and business. Students may also take courses in personal finance and public speaking. The curriculum avoids the ideological biases common in public schools; for example, the government and history sections of the curriculum emphasize Austrian economics, libertarian political theory, and the history of liberty.
Students can use the student discussion forums to interact with, learn from, and teach their peers.
One unique feature of the curriculum is that it gives students the opportunity to start their own Internet-based businesses.
The curriculum is free for students from kindergarten through fifth grade. Families above the fifth grade pay $250 a year, plus $50 per course. However, for the next three months, the Ron Paul Curriculum is offering -- for non-members only -- an online summer school refresher program for students above the fifth grade. For just $25 students can access the curriculum for three months. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to see if my curriculum meets their child's needs.
If you are a parent dissatisfied with existing education options, I hope you will take advantage of the Ron Paul Curriculum's summer refresher program and consider opting out of Common Core and opting in to the Ron Paul Curriculum.
