American parents were furious at the arbitrary school shutdowns forced on them by Democratic governors, bureaucrats at the CDC, and big city teachers’ unions. Anyone paying attention saw the harm being done to America’s kids when they were pushed out of classrooms, off playgrounds, and away from sports. Some parents were able to adapt and even improve their children’s learning with home school curricula like Ron Paul’s, but many working parents had no way to help their kids, and they suffered for it.
A new study shows just how detrimental school shutdowns were, and at the Ron Paul Institute, former congressman and presidential candidate, Dr. Ron Paul explains his homeschool curriculum that offers kids an alternative to the industrialized education they currently receive. He writes (abridged):
A new report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), a program of the US Department of Education, confirms what most parents already knew: shutting down the schools because of the panic over covid was a disaster for American schoolchildren
What makes this especially tragic is that there was no medical justification for closing the schools.
It was clear to anyone truly following the science that school shutdowns were unnecessary and harmful.
Children were also forced to wear masks the whole school day, which made many children sick.
For almost a decade I have been involved with homeschooling through my Ron Paul Curriculum. Students using my homeschooling curriculum can attain a superior education in comparison to standards set by politicians or bureaucrats. Instead of indoctrinating students with instruction in subjects including critical race theory, the Ron Paul Curriculum provides students with a solid education in history, literature, mathematics, and the sciences. It also gives students the opportunity to create their own websites and internet-based businesses. The curriculum is designed to be self-taught, with students helping and learning from each other via online forums.
Starting in the fourth grade, students are required to write at least one essay a week. Students are required to post their essays on their blogs. Students also take a course in public speaking.
The curriculum does emphasize the history, philosophy, and economics of liberty, but it never substitutes indoctrination for education. The goal is to produce students with superior critical thinking skills who can thrive with their individuality.

Dr. Ron Paul is a former member of Congress and Distinguished Counselor to the Mises Institute.
