According to CNSNews.com the number of students who are homeschooled has been climbing!
In the ten-year period from 2003 to 2012, the number of American children 5 through 17 years old who were being homeschooled by their parents climbed by 61.8 percent, according to newly released data from the U.S. Department of Education.
At the same time, the percentage of all U.S. students in the 5-through-17 age group who were homeschooled increased from 2.2 percent to 3.4 percent.
So many people now homeschool that if you were to add them all up they would replace the population of the entire city of Boston or Washtington D.C.!
The 677,000 increase in homeschooled students from 2003 to 2012 is more than the populations of Memphis (653,450), Seattle (652,405), Boston (645,966) and Washington, D.C. (646,449).
Certainly, with public education falling in quality and rising in price, the trend to homeschooling will continue long into the future. What great news for liberty!
