[07/16/20]   Homeschool vs Public school part 2
With Americas's public school systen in a decline, more and more parents are turning to homeschooling as a solution. The surprising part? When it comes time to perform, homeschoolers are blowing everyone out of the water.
* Over 2.4 million students are now in homeschools, a 75% increase since 1999.
* The U.S. high school graduation rate falls yearly in public schools.
*In 2011 Homeschool students graduated college at a higher rate then their peers ( 66.7 % compared to 57.5 %)
*But ....Are homeschoolers a little Odd?? Studies say NO. In a study measuring communication, daily living skills, socialization and maturity homeschoolers outscored public school kids on every level.
An education system that produces smart, mature students? No wonder homeschool is expected to continue expanding =)

[07/16/20]   This is some thing that I posted 8 yrs ago. You can be sure that the downfalls of some public school systems have worsened ( especially with the pandemic and all the hatred in the world right now) and I know first hand that private schooling positive statistics have only become greater.

Homeschool vs. Public School Part 1

A look at home school vs public school statistics will open your thoughts to the horror of what is going on with the falling down of the present systems set in place to educate our students! NBC has brought to the nation the state of sadness with our educational system the program titled “Education Nation” is trying to address the problem. I was interested in the fact that they had brought together teachers, parents and other educators to solve the problem. Where were the people who had successfully educated their own children with home schooling? Where were the students in this discussion? Did they seek out the students and ask them where the system was failing them? Our students are young adults trying to figure out where it is that they will go in life. Trying to figure out how to get there and what they will need to achieve their goals! They are not stupid, just undereducated!

The statistics on the difference between home school students and their public counter parts are revealing! According to Home School Legal Defense Association home school students out ranked public school students on their SAT scores in every area tested! The gap widens as the grade level of the students increased. If you want to stay up at night and worry take a few hours and read the government report recently published by the Institute for Education Statistics this publication is available for anyone who is interested in the statistical data about education today.
