There are not many homeschool statistics available and the government statistics should be reasonable accurate

     As parents get more and more disillusioned with the public school system they are turning to homeschooling, and the homeschooling statistics support that. There are some home school statistics floating around that

basically say that homeschooling is increasing at around 15% a year but I couldn’t find any reference to this statistic. 

     The latest figures from the IES, The National Center For Educational Statistics, in 2003 say that around 2.2% of America children are home schooled.  That is a 29% increase for a 4-year period from the 1999 figures. Not the 15% figure that I have come across before. 

To Homeschooling Parents And Parents of Children who are having Problems Learning to Read

Have A look At Three Free Videos About How to Teach Your Child To Read 

     Video 1: Introduction To Montessori Reading.

 Video 2: How To Make Sandpaper Letters. 

          Video 3: How To Teach Reading Using Sandpaper Letters

     As has been said many times before 'a picture tells a thousand words' and these free videos do just that. They are easier to understand as you can see how to make sandpaper letters then how to teach using them.

     The most popular reason for homeschooling according to the statistics were ‘Concern about environment of other schools’ coming in a 31% and followed very closely at 30% was ‘To provide religious or moral instruction.’ After watching the 20/20 documentary Stupid In America (free on YouTube) I am not surprised that ‘Concern about environment of other school’ came in tops. 

     The IES report doesn’t cover how well or better the home schooled kids faired against their public school peers. There are figures out there that paint a rosy picture for home schoolers with the average reading and math score way above the public school average. With one to one teaching and the family behind you it is no wonder that the scores are so much higher. I don’t really think you can compare public school to homeschool as there are problems with one teacher controlling 30+ students. 

     One statistic I do like and don’t believe is the 65.5% of 4th grade home school students watch one hour or less of TV each day. Mine watches 1 and a ˝ hours a day and would watch more if she got the chance. For more information about our homeschooling products see our Homeschooling Page
