A self-taught Curriculum
Traditional educational environments typically proceed at a pace determined by the teacher and the comprehension level of the kids in the class. The Ron Paul Curriculum is completely different. As a self-taught curriculum, students essentially teach themselves using the materials provided. There is a heavy emphasis on original sources. If a student is stuck, he is expected to search for answers himself or discuss the problem with his peers through a forum. The expectations are high but when we provide kids the opportunities to achieve on their own, they tend to surprise us.
