If you still have the curriculum and have quit the program you should send it back as per your agreement.
It is not true at all that you don't have access to research. In fact, a large portion of the curriculum is composed of research projects in which you are required to find a variety of valid sources, evaluate them for their worth, and compile your own research on a large number if subjects. I know because I am more than 2/3 of the way through the main curriculum (not the sections you are referring to in your first post). My research projects are full of references from a variety of mainstream textbooks, respected journal articles, midwifery textbooks, consumer oriented books, and the knowledge of expert midwives who have been practicing for a long time.
I don't understand your use of the word 'access'. If the school were to provide all the research for you, then that would indeed be restricting your learning to their view. However, with AAMI, you are required to do comprehensive research and draw your own conclusions. You are correct that AAMI does not provide subscriptions to databases and journal copies like many universities, but you should know that no independent midwifery school will have the resources to do that, certainly not one that only charges a few thousand dollars. Only large institutions can provide that. However, AAMI does not restrict your ability to research on your own, in fact they require it.
I understand that on first glance the curriculum may not seem like much, but once you start actually doing it, you find that it is fantastic in the way it forces you to push yourself and learn. Whatever you are willing to put into it is what you get out of it. I am willing to put in a great deal of my own research and create completed assignments that are truly useful to me long-term.
Obviously AAMI wasn't right for you, it sounds like you feel more comfortable in a standard university setting. There's nothing wrong with that. I simply want to portray a more accurate vision of AAMI because I have advanced through the program far enough to see it's worth to me and any student wanting to really delve into her own research and develop her own opinions. I have been attending college at the same time as I have been doing AAMI for the last year. Even though I have a 4.0 average at college, I know that the quality/quantity of learning I get from my AAMI curriculum is far and away higher than college. But it is true that that particular brand of independent study is not easy and doesn't work for everyone.
