How many kids are home schooled? Yesterday, I learned that over 2,000,000 students are home schooled in the United States at this time. There is a 7% increase each year. What is 7% of two million? 140,000. Yikes! That seems like a big increase. Does that mean job security to me? Not necessarily, but it does mean many businesses are jumping into the pond seeing $$$ for curriculum and services.
