Home Schooling Achievement

(Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader)

Home Schooling Achievement provides a concise look at home school achievement test score data, followed by a more in depth comparison of student's scores with parent education levels, money spent on home school curriculum, government regulation, and race, and gender. In all categories, home school students' successes defy the standard predictors. The final chart examines activities and community involvement and resoundingly explodes the myth that home schooled children lack adequate socialization opportunities.

Reporting relevant data about the results of home schooling in a brief and easily accessible manner, this flyer addresses the common questions of state legislators when considering bills calling for more regulation. It is a quick snapshot of home school achievement for the media and for those considering this successful educational venture for their own children.

Home Schooling Achievement is excerpted from Strengths of Their Own-Home Schoolers Across America: Academic Achievement, Family Characteristics, and Longitudinal Traits (Ray, 1997) and The Scholastic Achievement and Demographic Characteristics of Home School Students in 1998 (Rudner, 1999).
