Homeschooling comes of age
THE rise of homeschooling is one of the most significant social trends of the past half century. This reemergence of what is in fact an old practice has occurred for a distinctly modern reason: a desire to wrest control from the education bureaucrats and reestablish the family as central to a child’s learning. Homeschooling is almost always a matter of choice. Schools are generally available, but homeschooling families have chosen not to use them.
