Homeschooling Grows in the US, persecuted elsewhere


Posted: 12/17/10

Just wanted to post this quote from here

Two million or about 4% of school–age children in the United States are homeschooled. It's a much different story overseas: Sweden is cracking down on homeschoolers; Spain doesn't allow it in any case, even if a child is home–bound by illness; it is banned in Brazil; the Netherlands only allows it under exceptional circumstances; Austria allows it, but administers annual achievement tests; and France has a monitoring system that Britain may also adopt.

According the government site nces the percentage of US students home schooled is about

1.7% in 1999
2.2% in 2003
2.9% in 2007
