How American Homeschoolers Measure Up

I had no idea that when we took the plunge two and a half years ago and decided to homeschool our daughter, that we would come to fully embrace the homeschool lifestyle. We have watched Kyri thrive at home, and we have every intention of continuing this homeschool journey with our younger children.

Homeschooled: How American Homeschoolers Measure Up

  1. This is great! I think there are so many misconceptions about homeschooling that it is really important to share this info. So many people think that homeschool is the worse thing you can do for a child. It’s crazy!


    • I am so amazed, with how popular homeschooling has become, that people still hold on to these outdated and off-base views. More and more people are choosing to homeschool (and not for religious reasons). But people still want to use the horrible stereotype of isolated, uber-religious, socially-awkward homeschooler to justify their dislike of homeschooling. I have yet to meet a homeschooler that fits this bill. I often wonder if parents who are so opposed to homeschooling feel less than adequate and that is why they feel the need to be critical – like somehow someone who homeschools their kids makes them feel like they are not doing enough to take charge of their own kids’ education. And people who are in the public schools who are critical of homeschooling, well I think they just take it personally, like by choosing to not use “their product” that somehow it is an insult
