83 Percent of evangelical Teens are in Public School
More than one in 10 evangelical teenagers in the United States are homeschooled and an additional six percent are in private school, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.
All total, 17 percent of evangelical teens ages 13-17 are not in public school in the United States ‚Äď the highest percentage among all Christian groups and more than double that of teens who aren‚Äôt affiliated with any religion, the survey found.
Additionally, the 11 percent of evangelical teens who are homeschooled is the highest among all Christian groups and, again, more than twice as much as that of unaffiliated teens. It‚Äôs also nearly double the national average (6 percent).
Five percent of evangelical teens attend a religious private school, and an additional 1 percent go to a non-religious private school....
It would appear that the cost of a private, Christian school education dwarfs that of homeschooling and it's driving a push toward homeschooling. It was reported several years ago that the number of homeschooled kids surpassed those in Christian school in North Carolina, for instance. Cost is very much a factor. Plus, the job is given to dads to teach their children, not churches or governmnets. And there is the aspect of being able to tailor an education to meet your child's needs as the wide variety of curriculum from Christian sources simply boggles the mind.
Homeschooling is not for every family, but for those who can, it's a huge blessing. Otherwise, Christian school is a viable alternative but parents still have to watch that humanistic/Progressive/Darwinist thinking doesn't creap in.
Public schools have changed so much since 2000. No more failing and repeating a grade, so drop outs are graduating. No more detention, computers and laptops to all, providing a distraction in the class, no negative disciplining students, instead using positive reinforcement to baby them into highly sophisticated snowflakes. Oh teach them perverse thrash on top if it all.
I have often pointed out I have no problem whatsoever with home schooling, and have recommended this video quite a few times

What I can find from Pew research says on education, doesn't seem to match what is said in the article. https://tinyurl.com/y6dcqkz6 I will let others do some research see if they can find what is in the article and what Pew research might say about it?
