Homeschool Numbers On The Rise

It should come as no surprise that the number of students being homeschooled has risen dramatically since the 90's and even the beginning of the 21st century. Ask most any parent that has chosen to homeschool, myself included what their main reasons for homeschooling their children are, and they will almost always list: school bullying, other forms of violence in public schools, drugs, and classroom sizes that are way too large for even the best of teachers to handle.

Now it seems that not only are average Americans catching on to the rising numbers of homeschoolers, even former NFL players are noticing the trend. Terry Bradshaw, former Pittsburgh Steelers football player, turned TV host on Today In America, has not only noticed the trend, but has added a completely new TV series on the topic. His new series, titled Home School Essentials, focuses on the rise in homeschool numbers, as well as discusses the many questions that new parents have as they debate on whether or not to homeschool.
