Help for Homeschoolers

Why would anyone want to homeschool? Dad helping son.

Dr. James Emory White listed these facts about homeschool in his blog post “Why Homeschool?”

Kids do better academically when homeschooled.

Here are the facts. And I do mean facts:

  • Homeschooled children significantly outperform children educated in public school systems in reading, language, math, science and social studies.
  • Homeschooled children’s tests scores were not significantly affected by their parents’ household incomes or whether their parents were certified teachers.
  • Homeschooled children perform better overall in college — from their freshman years to their senior years.

And want one more fact that may surprise you?

  • Homeschooled children do not lag behind public school children overall in communication and socialization skills.

Dr. White goes on to say, “I cannot say this strongly enough. I hope and pray and that every parent will consider homeschooling their child at least through the most pivotal years, which to my thinking, is late elementary and middle school years.” I encourage you to read the rest of this informative post.

According to A-Z Home’s Cool, an estimated 1,567,732 were homeschooled in the U.S. in 2013-2014. Numbers have taken a sharp increase since 2013.
