5.0 out of 5 stars THE SCHOOL REVOLUTION by Dr. Ron Paul, September 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System (Hardcover)
THE SCHOOL REVOLUTION by Dr. Ron Paul is a contemplative work. And by that, I mean that it endeavors to provoke your consideration to several issues in education while also reminding you of examples and events in recent (and sometimes distant) history. In true Ron Paul style, he demands that people take responsibility for their own lives, learn a little about what's really going on, and take small steps in the right direction. Enough small steps made by enough people have the power to change the world.

IMPRESSIONS

This book is an easy read, and I feel like it flows quite well. Dr. Paul's conversational style resonates throughout the book, and we're given an interesting look at Dr. Paul's life (in politics and in personal life), recent politics and history surrounding the current educational system, and common sense strategies for dealing with many of the issues we face.

Don't let the title turn you off; the revolution described in this book is a very peaceful one, requiring force of will in large quantities and force of arms in no amount. This book is a well-written musing of education past, present, and future, backed by a lifetime of experience, fact, and example.

RECOMMENDATIONS

This is a great book for libertarian- and conservative-minded parents to pick up, in my personal opinion. There is a lot of truth here for people raising kids for the future, a future which will likely see a hugely powerful (and probably nearly invincible) police state. Unless we do something about it.

IN CLOSING

This is the second book I've read of Dr. Paul's, and the first I've reviewed. I didn't review the other because it was quite a while ago and I rarely reviewed anything in those days. However, this one I can and do recommend. If you identify yourself as a libertarian or conservative, I think it will be one of the better reads you find this year.

And... no idea why it says Hardcover when I bought and reviewed the Kindle edition. Ah, well.
