Homeschooling has shot up dramatically over the last two years, to the point that today one out of five families with children is homeschooling.
According to data from the US Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey, ever since 2012, the percentage of homeschoolers held steady at 3.3%. But in the Spring of the 2019-2020 school year, 5.4% of households with a school-aged child were homeschooling. In the Fall of the 2020-2021 school year, that number more than doubled to 11.1%. And in the next semester, in the Spring of the 2020-2021 school year, that number nearly doubled again, to 19.5%.
