More Military Families Are Home-Schooling By Sophia Stamas KCEN TV
More military parents are opting to teach their kids at home, and there are lots of programs and resources around Fort Hood that can help them.
The Military Child Education Coalition estimates about nine percent of military kids are now home-schooled.
That’s compared to only three percent for the rest of the population.
Fort Hood’s terrible shooting murders in 2009, along with other mass school shootings, made one soldier is glad his family is homeschooling.
For her dad, Sergeant First Class Ross Martin, having his wife, Amy, do the teaching is more than just stability – It’s peace of mind.
“With all the shootings going on, this just for me, personally, I feel a lot better for my children, that they’re safe,” said Ross.
