The Fraser Institute, an independent research and educational organization based in Canada, released its latest report on homeschooling today. Its conclusion?
"Home schooling appears to improve the academic performance of children from families with low levels of education."
"Poorly educated parents who choose to teach their children at home produce better academic results for their children than public schools do. One study we reviewed found that students taught at home by mothers who never finished high school scored a full 55 percentage points higher than public school students from families with comparable education levels."
There's more, too, and quite positive. Go check it out if you need to reassure someone.
