Homeschool statistics

Jun 7, 2014

There is a lot of debate, myths and misguided information regarding homeschooling. Take a look at these statistics related to the promising hope of homeschooling:

  • Over 2.04 million students are learning at home in America.   A 75% increase from 1999.
  • 73% report dissatisfaction from the American public school educational system as a main reason to homeschool.
  • Did you know that it is illegal in 28 countries to homeschool your child?
  • Nine other countries make it almost impossible to homeschool without severe monetary fines or risk losing your children to.

Why should you homeschool if you live in one of the legal countries that allows you to teach your children?

  • Better test scores.  National average percentile tests scores average almost double when it comes to homeschool vs public school children.
  • Customize or individualize the curriculum and learning environment for your child.
  • Accomplish more academically than in schools.
  • Enhance family relationships between children and parents and among siblings.
  • Provide guided and reasoned social interactions with youthful peers and adults.
  • Provide a safer environment for child, because of violence, drugs, psychological abuse, and improper and unhealthy sexuality associated with institutionalized schools.
  • Teach and impart a particular set of values, beliefs, and worldview to child.

Studies show that the home-educated are doing well, typically above average on measures of social, emotional, and psychological development.  Research measures include peer interaction, self-concept, leadership skills, family cohesion, participation in community service, and self-esteem.

The reason for all of this is because homeschool students are regularly engaged in social and educational activities outside their homes and with people other than their nuclear-family members.  They are commonly involved in activities as field trips, 4-H, scouting, church ministry, sports teams, and community volunteer work.

Worried that you cannot afford a high class expensive A+ rated curriculum due to financial stress??  Do not fret, studies have shown that  it does not matter the amount of money that you spend on your homeschool education.  Statistics show that a child learns the same academically whether you spend over $600 a year or less than $600 a year per child.
