    Another Homeschooling Report

    By Mark Roth on January 6, 2009 at 8:51 am

    Homeschooling goes boom in America

    A homeschooling movement is sweeping the nation — with 1.5 million children now learning at home, an increase of 75 percent since 1999.

    According to the story, a 2007 survey asked parents why they choose to homeschool and allowed them to provide several reasons. If you homeschool, which of the following reasons do you identify with?

      I was wondering if HR 4040 will impact Rod and Staff and CLE materials now that they have to be tested for lead (which is $100-400 per test, per item!). A lot of Homeschool Resource Centers are looking at having to shut down on Feb 10th, when the law is enacted. I may have to buy my materials early if they are. I have enclosed an article about it, which I hope is permissible. This affects even garage sales and thrift stores. 🙁
