Today, the NC Division of Non-Public Education released home school statistics for the 2014-15 school year. It was a remarkable year for North Carolina’s home schools.
Not only was there a 9 percent increase in the number of homeschoolers statewide, the homeschool population eclipsed 100,000 students for the first time.
Over the last four school years, the homeschool population increased by a staggering 34 percent.
I’ll have more to say about these statistics in my weekly newsletter, which will be published tomorrow.
