The Mainstreaming of Homeschooling

Study: Homeschoolers score 37 points higher

Test scores aren't everything. And all public schools aren't the same. But homeschooling is becoming a popular option for giving one's kid an educational advantage. It used to be the choice for kooks and conspiracy theorists and many of the kids were socially inept and weird. Not any more. It's not even just for ultra conservative evangelicals or those who are anti-public school. Believe it or not, people are actually choosing homeschooling because they perceive it as the best educational choice for their child.

Numerous media outlets this week are reporting on recently released studies showing how much better homeschoolers are scoring on standardized tests and doing so for thousands of dollars cheaper. Also of interesting note, studies are showing that the level of education of one's teacher is not a direct correlate for how well a child does in school.
