Homeschooled Student Population Growing Fast

Homeschooling is rapidly gaining popularity among minorities, with 41% of homeschooled students identifying as non-white.

NHERI’s report stated the most common motivations for homeschooling involved customizing the curriculum according to the child, enhancing family relationships, and teaching particular values, beliefs, and world views. Other reasons included ensuring a safer learning environment and protecting minority children from racism in public schools.

Research findings indicate that homeschooled students thrive and perform above average in social, emotional, and psychological development. Their scores have reflected higher percentiles of 15 to 25 on standardized academic achievement tests than those of public school students.

The at-home format has proven beneficial for young entrepreneurs, allowing them to pursue their passions ahead of adulthood. Forbes spotlighted 14-year-old Cash Daniels from Chattanooga, Tennessee, who balances his conservation nonprofit, The CleanUp Kids, with homeschooling. Daniels explained, “The personalized schedule gives me the ability to work on my business and give back to my community.” The flexible schooling option has allowed the teen to pursue more speaking engagements across his state.
