K-12 IMPLOSION UPDATE: America’s Best-Educated Kids Don’t Go To School. “The explosive growth in home schooling has been fueled by dissatisfaction with public schools.”
Plus: “With public school students at the 50th percentile, home schoolers were at the 89th percentile in reading, the 86th percentile in science, the 84th percentile in language, math, and social studies. Socio-economic factors may have a lot to do with why home schoolers do so much better. Virtually all have a mother and a father who are living together. Nearly two thirds of fathers and 62 percent of mothers have a bachelor’s degree or higher.”
Increasingly, however, public schools are designed for kids from dysfunctional backgrounds.
