How Do RPC Courses Compare With College Classes?
As a university instructor I am struck by what a bargain the Ron Paul curriculum is.
I have just completed the Physical Science course, which is the first course I am creating for the Ron Paul curriculum. I put the same amount of rigor into the Ron Paul courses as I do my university courses and this particular course is very similar to a course I have taught.
This course is made up of 180 25 minute lectures that I deliver. This adds up to about 80 hours of instruction. 80 hours of lecture is what a student would get if they took two 3 hour university classes from me.
For a student to get 80 hours of lecture from me through the university, the student would have to pay about $1,400 in tuition and fees and then buy an expensive textbook, bringing the total cost to over $1,500, comparing this to what it cost for a student to take a course through the Ron Paul Curriculum and it is easy to see what a bargain it is. And it is not just me, many of the instructors here are experienced university instructors whose instruction would normal costs thousands of dollars per course.
