We designed Boundary Stone’s homeschool government and economics courses to take a student through our textbooks in one semester each. This material exposes students to the practical principles of government and economics and they learn how to apply these principles to real life decisions. They also examine history and the consequences we are currently experiencing for applying or ignoring these principles in our past.
