State reports indicate that more parents are placing their kids in home schools, and some officials don’t think the trend will end soon.
The annual statistical report released earlier this week by the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education in the Department of Administration revealed a record 41,042 home schools operating statewide in 2008-09, up from 38,367 a year ago, and an increase from 71,566 home school students in 2007-08 to 77,065.
Home schools are now located in each of the state’s 100 counties, the report said.
