Homeschooling. If you’re a parent – especially a parent who preps, homesteads, or both — chances are you’ve thought about homeschooling. Maybe you’re homeschooling already.
You’re not alone. There’s more joining the homeschooling camp every year. The National Center for Education Statistics reports 1.7 percent of kids were home schooled in 1999, 2.2 percent in 2003, and 2.9 percent in 2007. In 2011, that figure was at 4 percent. If you crunch the numbers that means the rate of growth in homeschooling is steadily increasing: It increased 29% between 1999 and 2003, jumped to 36% between 2003 and 2007, and between 2007 and 2011, came in just under a 39% growth rate.
