Back to Homeschool 2013 - Details, details and statistics, too

We sure do get a lot of questions about homeschooling, and it's fun to share. We're facing a tougher time now as other families give up the ghost to head for public or private schooling options. Those are a LOT less work for the parents, and in these pre-teen/teen years, a lot less fraught with interpersonal conflict when the teen's away from parent for hours on end. E is watching her friends either get sucked into the system or move far, far away, and she's tempted into a different schooling option. We'll see what comes of it, but for now, she's beginning to realize the type of freedom homeschooling has afforded her and opts to remain on the path.

We're off for a brief adventure before starting our formal studies for the year. So, I'll leave you with this neat infographic full of homeschool-related stats. What do you think?
