Ron Paul isn’t wasting any time in retirement. The former presidential candidate, who left Congress in January, is working on a book about education.

“New School Manifesto” will be released by Grand Central on Sept. 17. The publisher describes the upcoming book as “a focused guide to Dr. Paul’s position, which centers on a strong support for home schooling and free market principles applied to education. He makes the case for individual freedoms as they pertain to educating our children, and nimbly dissects the most pressing issues that need to be addressed from the libertarian point of view.”

Ron Charles is the editor of The Washington Post's Book World. For a dozen years, he enjoyed teaching American literature and critical theory in the Midwest, but finally switched to journalism when he realized that if he graded one more paper, he'd go crazy.
