Homeschooling and Socio-Economic Factors

Just read this at Homeschool News and Muse: New Article on Fraser Institute Report. From Sandra's post:

Home Schooling Improves Academic Performance and Reduces Impact of Socio-Economic Factors (the link is here)

  • Home schooling appears to improve the academic performance of children from families with low levels of education, and
  • "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."
