The Ron Paul Curriculum is a complete home-school curriculum. It is built to be self-contained and to require as little supervision as possible. The lessons are delivered through video with some additional texts. To access any course, you must first become a member, then you purchase any individual courses you wish. The first 5 lessons (videos) of most courses are free and available for viewing by non-members. I have not bought membership myself but have gone through most of the free lessons, particularly for high school English, literature and history. NB: it naturally has a North-American focus.

The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved."
