Why Do Parents Choose To Homeschool Their Children?
Homeschooling or home education/home-based learning is becoming an increasingly common choice for parents, who wish to educate their children from home, rather than from a formal or traditional school. According to the National Center For Education Statistics (NCES) 850,000 children in 1999 were home-schooled in the USA alone. This number rose to 1.1 million in 2003, and in 2007 there were an estimated 1.5 million students learning from home. This number is expected to rise dramatically over the coming years. There are a number of reasons why parents choose to school their children from home;
Schools -The student could not get into a desired school of choice, poor learning environments at certain schools, parents object to what local schools teach.
Beliefs - Parents may have religious or personal beliefs relating to how a child should be educated.
Special Needs - The child may have special needs or require certain supervision that some schools are unable to provide.
Convenience - Some parents find homeschooling convenient, especially if a family live in a remote location or do not have access to reliable transport.
