Report: Homeschooling Growing Seven Times Faster than Public School Enrollment

As dissatisfaction with the U.S. public school system grows, apparently so has the appeal of homeschooling. Educational researchers, in fact, are expecting a surge in the number of students educated at home by their parents over the next ten years, as more parents reject public schools.

A recent report in Education News states that, since 1999, the number of children who are homeschooled has increased by 75%. Though homeschooled children represent only 4% of all school-age children nationwide, the number of children whose parents choose to educate them at home rather than a traditional academic setting is growing seven times faster than the number of children enrolling in grades K-12 every year.

As homeschooling has become increasingly popular, common myths that have long been associated with the practice of homeschooling have been debunked. ...

Lee: which article are you referring to? I do not doubt that homeschooling is growing (although many also stop homeschooling after a few years). I simply doubt the article as such because it has no evidence. Christians should be in a habit of quoting reliable sources, as I think you would agree. The Economist may be accurate but it was not quoted on this page-article.

Yes, if you want to see more articles on home schooling from "The Economist," you can look at, Home Schooling. I think the article that I put up would suffice, however.

Shawn:
It is confusing but the research article is
the third article and has numerous citations. I would say the numbers appear to be consistent with my observations. Homeschooling is growing primarily for 3 reasons: 1) Violence/bullying in government schools, 2) Explicit and/or warped sex
ed being forced on young students, and 3) parents wanting a better and Godly education at home. Let's rejoice in this latter response.

You then might like this article from "The Economist," if memory serves a respected source and written before the one that SA chose to look at, Keep it in the family--Home schooling is growing ever faster.

I would say the public schools in Nebraska are even a better influence than Catholic parochial schools in this state, (See the earlier thread about the valedictorian who read the Lord's Prayer. and for that matter, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF)).

Is is it sad that public schools are loosing the trust of the public, yes. It is sad, that Home Schooling is seen more often as the only acceptable alternative to schooling of a child. Besides parochial schools, which all Christians should shun, there are some fine private religious schools in Lincoln, Nebraska, as well.

This article is *unreliable.* It cites not one study or statistic that can be verified. It relies completely upon another article that itself has no citations. Reader beware.

This seems like a rather poorly worded headline. One would not expect public school enrollment to increase much, if at all, given the fact that it is an established institution, and generally, people cannot choose whether or not to educate their children. Without a major increase in the number of children born annually, one would expect public school enrollment rates to remain somewhat stagnant at best, perhaps even declining. It has nothing to do with homeschoolers. Apples and oranges.

SF, public schools have been around a lot longer than that, e.g., The Boston Latin School is a public exam school founded on April 23, 1635. It is still around and still rated in the top tier of schools.

Home schooling as an acceptable means of education has been around for a long time also. Intelligent (no not wise) atheists used home schooling for their son, the famous atheistic logician, John Stuart Mill.

Home schooling is well known in Nebraska, Our public educational t.v. system did a good job highlighting it, NET: Home School Nebraska.

Some may find Links To State Laws & Organizations For Homeschoolers useful. Unfortunately their link to the Nebraska organization, Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home didn't work, but this one will.

Romans 13:1-7 (KJV) They're doing a lousy job. They not only punish the wicked but, because they themselves are wicked and far from what God designed them for, they alao punish the innocent. They're also guilty of stepping out of bounds and taking the churches job (feeding the poor and helping the needy). But hey all the modern churches are apostate and spend their money on buildings and youth programs (and we all know youth ministers, etc are umbilical but that's a whole notha' can of worms) so thered not any money left to idiot for what God wants. And as stated before the government takes the parents role in educating the children. Sigh, the whole system is out of whack. It's not the way God designed it to be. It'll only get worse too. I look forward to he day my King returns to call His bride home! Come Lord Jesus come!

The job of the government religion is to execute violence upon innocent people, as those who comprise it knoweth not good. That is the nature of government, and it is doing its job very well.

Public schools are traditional? Since when?! It's only been around for about 100yrs or so. Before that parents did their God given jobs. Parents, it's your job to educate your child (Deut. 6, Proverbs 1:7 KJV) not the governments. Their God given job is to punish the wicked -though they do a lousy job at that but they'll answer for it. Take your children out of that wicked place where your children are being indoctrinated by the world.
