"During the past 30 years, homeschooling families have proven that parents can do a better job than the public school – socially and academically. Homeschooling works; everybody wins." ~ Gena Suarez, publisher of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
And homeschooling continues its unabated, exponential growth making it the fastest growing form of education in the United States. Homeschooling rates have seen large increases among these demographics:
- Hispanic families (91 percent)
- Two-parent households (97 percent)
- Children of college graduates (87 percent)
- Households making more that $75,000 per year (338 percent).
"Homeschooling has been growing at 5-12 percent per annum over the past several years, a quicker clip than private schools are growing, while public schools are seeing their percentages decline."
This is the future of education in the United States. It is both a fascinating, and encouraging, cultural phenomenon.
