With the constant scrutiny that public schools are facing, there are a lot of concerns from parents. Many want to make sure their child or children have the best education possible, and a lot of public schools are not meeting the minimum state requirements. For those that cannot afford a private school education, home schooling has become a very attractive alternative.
According to CNN, the number of home schooled students has risen 74 percent since 1999. There have recently been some positive developments with schools improving their graduation rates and strengthening their curriculum. Some parents decided years ago to home school because of the public school curriculum lacking in certain areas and are sticking with it.
