 Profound shift in kind of families who are home schooling


[b]Profound shift in kind of families who are home schooling[/b]


Parents who home-school children increasingly are white, wealthy and well-educated — and their numbers have nearly doubled in a decade, a new federal government report says.
What else has nearly doubled? The percentage of girls who are home-schooled. They now outnumber home-schooled girls by a wide margin.

As of spring 2007, an estimated 1.5 million, or 2.9% of all school-age children in the USA, were home-schooled, up from 1.7% in 1999.

It seems the first *girls* was intended to read *boys.* I did not check the article.

If I had a child, if there was any way to do it, I would be homeschooling. Especially when I see the fruits of public schools in our neighborhood. So sad, they do not even know how they are being held down.
