HOW DO HOME-SCHOOLED CHILDREN DO LATER ON??

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Oct 30, 2003

Well, a study has just been released that says: Quite well!

"For nearly 20 years, critics and the curious have been asking about the homeschooled: But how will they do in the "real world" of adulthood? As a corollary, they have also asked: What about socialization?," said Ray. The study entitled, Home Educated and Now Adults, answers those questions. A summary of the findings by the Home School Legal Defence Association which funded the study indicates that homeschoolers attain more post-secondary education than do their non-homeschooled peers. Over 74% of home-educated adults ages 18-24 have taken college-level courses, compared to 46% of the general United States. For parents who sometimes wonder whether they are doing the right thing by homeschooling their children, it will be an encouragement to know that 95% of the homeschool graduates surveyed are glad that they were homeschooled.
