NC home schools: 107,000 students strong

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.
