Why is the homeschool community growing?
Parents have reported that they are concerned about the current educational system, state testing, safety/security, and the special needs of their children.
However, my heart jumps for joy when I hear parents say they want to homeschool because they want to be INVOLVED in their child’s education.
We teachers know that INVOLVEMENT is key to any child’s education.
