According to a study published January 3 by the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI), it’s estimated that over 2 million children were homeschooled in the United States in 2010. If your child is homeschooled, he or she is part of a rapidly growing population of children.
Michael Smith, president of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), says: “The growth of the modern homeschool movement has been remarkable. . . . Just 30 years ago there were only an estimated 20,000 homeschooled children.” Now an estimated 4% of the school-aged population is homeschooled.
If you’re wondering how well homeschooled children are doing, The Christian Post has links to articles indicating that “homeschooled children outperform their peers before and during college.”
