My Government Course for the Ron Paul Homeschool Curriculum

This is the second course I’ve created for the Ron Paul Homeschool Curriculum. (The first was Western Civilization I, from antiquity to 1492.) This one is a half-year course, so only 90 lessons instead of the usual 180. It’ll be available in a couple weeks.

I’ve been asked if my courses will be available a la carte, apart from the Ron Paul Curriculum. Yes. By later this year I’ll have a site where all of them will be available separately, although — and this is my contractual deal with them — you get a substantial discount if you get them through the RPC.

My next courses will be Western Civilization II and American Constitutionalism (yes, we’ll discuss Spooner).
