The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System

Whether or not you have children, you know that education is vital to the prosperity and future of our society. Yet our current system simply doesn't work. Parents feel increasingly powerless, and nearly half of Americans give our schools a grade of "C". Now, in his new book, Ron Paul attacks the problem head-on and provides a focused solution that centers on strong support for home schooling and the application of free market principles to the American education system.

Publisher's Summary

Twelve-term Texas Congressman, Presidential candidate, and #1 New York Times best-selling author Ron Paul returns with a highly provocative treatise about how we need to fundamentally change the way we think about America's broken education system in order to fix it.

Whether or not you have children, you know that education is vital to the prosperity and future of our society. Yet our current system simply doesn't work. Parents feel increasingly powerless, and nearly half of Americans give our schools a grade of "C". Now, in his new book, Ron Paul attacks the problem head-on and provides a focused solution that centers on strong support for home schooling and the application of free market principles to the American education system. Examining the history of education in this country, Dr. Paul identifies where we've gone wrong, what we can do about it, and how we can change the way we think about education in order to provide a brighter future for Americans.

    N/A


    What does Steve Coulter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good voice and the book was read well.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Everything about the future of education; how we got her, where we are, and the way ahead with education.

    Story
    "Why schools are the way that they are."
    If you could sum up The School Revolution in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, helpful, interesting


    If you could give The School Revolution a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Get big government out of the home town schools.


    Any additional comments?

    This was helpful but maddening. Dr. Paul explains why a one side fits all education doesn't work and he gives stats about this top heavy system. He also explains the common pathology that runs through the school staff. I've had a ton of problems with my son's school and I've learned that public school is where logic and reason have come to die. He explains why. Thank GOODNESS!

    "I gathered new knowledge-The motives of educators"

    I thought this was an amazing audio program on education and it has inspired me to want to teach my children differently. Thanks Ron Paul and may God bless you greatly. I have read 2 of your books now and I find them to be life changing reads.

    "So good I ordered the book"

    I wish every member of our state school board and local district boards would get this book and digest it. There is a revolution happening in education as parents wake up to not being trapped in a one-size-fits-all system. This book shares important principles and gives great ideas to parents and educators on things that can be done to provide a better and cheaper education for our children.
