America's Homeschooling Stigma Undeserved
just a portion of the article:
"Despite a common misperception that homeschooled kids are "too lazy" or "do nothing all day," surveys and statistics show something quite different. According to a study conducted by Dr. Lawrence Rudner:
Other studies confirm these findings, showing that home schooled students have a much higher college entry rate, score higher on SAT's and ACT's, have a higher rate of college graduation, and earn higher incomes in the workforce.
- The average home schooled 8th grade student performs four grade levels above the national average.
- One in four home school students are enrolled in a grade level that is above their age level.
- In every grade and in every subject, homeschooled students outperform both public and private school students.
These numbers come despite the fact that about 25% of parents in America who choose to home school either never attended college, or attended but never received a degree. An additional 7-10% have only an Associate degree."
