Washington’s strong homeschool law has been part of a national trend toward parents’ rejecting public schools and taking over their children’s education.
My husband Steve and I began homeschooling our three youngest children in 1992. It has always been quite a challenge to be parents to our children and teach them too. Even finding time to mark their essays or grammar tests can be tricky sometimes! We do love using a fantastic teacher app to help take us with marking!
Although currently only 4 percent of children are home-schooled in the U.S., the number of primary school kids whose parents are choosing to forgo a “traditional” education is growing seven times faster than the number of kids enrolling in K-12 every year.
