Homeschool numbers keep on growing!

Read about the increasing numbers of homeschoolers in this short but to the point article. Nice mention of unschoolers which is what many of us become once we've been doing it for a few years. As parents we instinctively know how our children learn and how they learn best. It's all about freedom...freedom to learn, freedom to explore and freedom to be the kind of parents we want to be. As unschoolers our lives centered around our family and not the public or private school. It's a whole other attitude and way of thinking. It's very refreshing to live in the real world as unschoolers and not in the bogus, dangerous and irreverent public school world.

Those numbers are based on the ones who register with their state.
Some states have no requirements and some people choose not to register. I bet there are many more homeschoolers.
I say woohoo!
The more people who leave the institution the better this country will be.
Thanks for posting this :)

This is so true. Many states don't require a head count of homeschoolers. Here in Vermont I know many families who don't enroll in the state's home study program so even our figures are inaccurate. I know, I was one of those families! I figured it was none of the state's business and I knew my children were well cared for and getting a better education than their public school relatives and friends.
