Homeschooling Comes of Age.
Lines, Patricia M.
Public Interest, n140 p74-85 Sum 2000
The rapidly growing homeschooling movement has been around for centuries. No definitive data exist on the scope of homeschooling, but limited data note that homeschooling families are generally religious, conservative, middle income, educated whites. People often consider homeschooling after disappointments with public school quality. Homeschooled children have above-average test scores. Public acceptance will be important to homeschooling's continued growth. (SM)
