Homeschooling is an increasing popular choice of parents. As children continue to have behavioral problems and learning difficulties, such as ADHD, in other educational environments parents are taking a close look at their options and they are not quick to rule out the option of educating their children at home.
There are many schools of thought on homeschooling. There are families that believe in “unschooling” there are families on the other end of the scope who believe in a more rigid schedule of boxed homeschool curriculum. Children are all different and therefore have different needs. Parents need to take into account what the learning style of the child is and what method of schooling will be best for the individual child as well as their family as a whole.
Homeschool statistics show that each year the number of homeschooled students is on the rise. On average the families that choose this option are middle class with college educated parents. Most of these families have a strong religious back ground and most are Caucasian. With that said, if you were to join any homeschool group in America you would probably find these statistics to be somewhat true but you would also find that there is a wide populous who choose to homeschool. There are solutions for everyone in the homeschooling arena and it attracts all kinds.
