Ron Paul--the former Texas congressman, presidential candidate, and #1 New York Times bestselling author--returns with a highly provocative and controversial treatise about America's broken education system. Ron Paul's new book delves deeply into one of the most important issues facing us today--the state of education in America. The vast majority of Americans agree that our education system is not working. Costs continue to rise while quality continues to plummet. Paul argues that we need to start thinking about the whole thing differently. This book is a focused guide to his position, which centers on a strong support for home schooling and free market principles applied to education. He makes the case that parents should have far greater freedoms when it comes to educating their children, and he nimbly dissects the most pressing problems from a libertarian point of view. He also briefly discusses the history of education in this country, along with what has gone wrong and how we got to where we are now. Unlike nearly all other politicians, Ron Paul's views have remained remarkably consistent for many decades, and even if for those who disagree with his principles, his arguments always spark critical thinking and challenge the status quo. His urgent appeal to all citizens will illuminate what we need to do to fix America's education system for future generations.
