Amount Of Students Homeschooling Increased 62% In The Past Decade

9 posts in this topic

In the past, parents have put very little thought into how their children would be educated, and many of them have thoughtlessly put their trust in government schooling. However, times are slowly beginning to change, as more parents are turning towards homeschooling, unschooling and alternative education paths.

According to figures released by The Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, the number of home-schooled students in the U.S. rose from 1.09 million in 2003 to 1.77 million by 2012, a 62% increase.

Proper education is a necessary part of our advancement on this earth.  If we are not able to create a better learning environment for our children then they will be doomed to repeat the same madness that came before them.  However, the whole structure of the government education system is damaging, traumatizing, and completely unnecessary, and it was never even relevant to begin with.

Given the right conditions to grow a child’s mind would be able to do incredible things, but they will become thoughtless drones if they are forced into a strict regimen where they are not able to think creatively and freely.

This one of my favorite articles about a mom that let her kids stay home from school and just read books. The blog is written by a Russian who experienced the collapse of the Soviet Union, now living in Boston. He brings up some interesting parallels.

A small but already by no means negligible number of Americans is starting to realize what their future looks like: no retirement, no job, no savings, plus they are getting old. Their only possible means of support in old age is their children.

And so, in the meantime, let's continue to mindlessly send our children off to "learning" institutions, where they will be properly supervised at all times, bored half to death, medicated into submission should they rebel, even by simply refusing to pay attention, not taught anything worth knowing by demoralized, underpaid public servants, and then spat out into the world with their spirits crushed.

Homeschooling is the best option for educating your children and in present day with the advent of home computers and high speed internet communications, it's much easier to home school than say 30 years ago. And the fact some stranger is not instilling their personal ideology in to your child's mind. Your children will come out way more mentally and emotionally healthy!

The public education system is terribly damaging. I think it's cruel to subject children to that trauma.
Homeschooling does take sacrifices but it's worth it. I'm glad more parents are opting out and taking responsibility.
The indoctrination centers will not change as long as parents continue send their kids there while complaining about how bad it is.

You guys should look into Common Core.

That's probably one of the main reasons more parents and kids are choosing to homeschool.
That and the forced vaccinations. Plus the violent behavior of the kids is totally out of control.

Report: School Crime and Violence Rise

Parents worried about their children's safety while at school might not just be over-protective. While the number of school-related deaths are starting to decrease, incidents of theft and violence – including student violence against teachers – are on the rise in America's schools, according to a federal reportreleased Tuesday. And schools are beefing up security, including video cameras and armed security guards, as a result.

The National Center for Education Statistics released its annual "Indicators of School Crime and Safety" report, finding that during the 2010-11 school year – the most recent data available – there were 31 violent deaths – such as homicides and suicides involving students, staff members and others – on school campuses. That's a decrease from a nearly 20-year high of 63 during the 2006-07 school year. But nonfatal incidents at school – such as theft and assault – appear to be on the rise, after several years of steady decline. In 2012, students between the ages of 12 and 18 experienced more than 1.3 million nonfatal victimizations, according to the report.
