    The homeschooling movement, in which parents opt to educate their children at home by themselves, gained popularity in the 1970s and is still going strong now.  For instance, according to the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) estimates, during the 2021–2022 academic year, 6% of school-age children were homeschooled. This is roughly 3.1 million kids in kindergarten through high school.

    States With The Most Homeschoolers In 2022

    What’s Homeschooling?

    Parent-directed education from the convenience of one’s own home is known as homeschooling.  It means that parents educate their kids academically at home rather than enrolling them in a typical public or private school. All 50 states in the US permit homeschooling, but each has its own regulations that families must follow.

    Why Homeschool Infographic

    Let’s view some stats!!

    i) Homeschoolers often achieve test scores that are 15–30% higher than those of pupils in public schools, according to the NHERI.

    ii) Homeschoolers typically achieve scores between 85% and 87%, compared to public school students who typically achieve scores of approximately 50%.

    iii) Around 9 million US pupils were homeschooled at least once by February 2020!

    iv) According to a recent 2020 Education Choices research, 70% of American parents are now more open to the idea of homeschooling.

    v) In the United States, there were roughly 3.1 million homeschoolers in grades K–12 in 2021–2022.

    What is the process of homeschooling?

    In the USA, each state has established its own laws allowing homeschooling. The following can be a summary of some of the most common characteristics among the many states:

    1. Setting up the required applications and registrations for homeschooling; Registration of children if they are enrolled in a certain school.

    2. Choosing a curriculum and homeschooling program that is appropriate for the child and the family.

    3. Ensuring that any subjects required by the state are covered in the curriculum.

    4. Joining a support group and information exchange by contacting associations and organizations in each state.

    Homeschooling Benefits

    Here are some of the most popular advantages of homeschooling in case you’re attempting to decide if it’s preferable to homeschool or choose a public school.

    a) Flexibility is offered by homeschooling. 

    b) You have power over how quickly your child learns.

    c)Learning outside of the classroom is possible with homeschooling.

    d) Personalized teaching.

    In addition, a 2010 study comparing the outcomes of homeschooled and public schooled children revealed that homeschoolers’ ACT and grade point average scores were higher than those of public school students, and as per NHERI, 66.7% of homeschooled students graduate from college, compared to 57.5% of students in public schools. 

    Benefits Of Homeschooling

    Why parents choose homeschooling?

    While we’re talking about homeschooling, we should figure out why people choose it. Here are the reasons listed by the National Center for Education Statistics:

    • The foremost concern is school-related issues such as safety, drugs, or negative peer pressure.
    • Some parents have a desire to provide moral instruction so they choose to homeschool.
    • Homeschooling is ideal for families that emphasize family life together.
    • Dissatisfaction with the academic instruction at other schools.
    • Desire to provide religious instructions.
    • Some parents oppose standard learning systems and choose an alternative approach to their children’s education.
    • Parents raising children with special needs find homeschooling a better option.
    • It is also appropriate for youngsters suffering from physical or mental health problems.
    • If a child is temporarily ill, the homeschooling system assists them in remaining on track with academic advancement.

    Homeschooling has several advantages, except for the fact that the children are unable to socialize with their classmates and may lack social skills. But given the results, it appears to be a feasible alternative. If you are homeschooling your child, you can benefit from Moonpreneur’s STEM education programs.

    My 8 year old son has become distant from his siblings and to us. I tried to find the reason but couldn’t, One day he confessed about getting bullied and begged not to ask him to go back to school. So I decided to homeschool him resulting the stronger family bonds we’ve developed. It’s truly priceless and a rewarding journey.

    Homeschooling may isolate children from valuable social interactions and diversity. It can limit their exposure to different perspectives and hinder their ability to navigate real-world challenges. #NotForEveryone

     First, make sure that you have a well-rounded curriculum. This should include all of the core subjects, such as math, science, English, and social studies. You may also want to include other subjects, such as foreign languages, art, and music.
    Second, create a daily or weekly lesson plan. 
    Finally, make sure that your child has access to a variety of learning resources.
