BUFFALO, NY (AP) – The Coronavirus pandemic has led to what could be the fastest rise in home education the U.S. has ever seen.
Now that schools are reopening and vaccines are available, many homeschooling families continue to do so.
According to The Associated Press, the number of homeschoolers this year has dropped from last year’s high, but is still significantly higher than before the pandemic.
according to National Institute for Home Education Research, About 3.7 million students were enrolled for the 2020-2021 academic year. That’s up from $ 2.5 million in the previous school year, according to the organization.
Families may rush to home education as an alternative to distance learning plans. But they say they continue to do so for a number of reasons, including COVID’s health concerns, disagreements with school policies and their desire to maintain what has worked for their children.
