Homeschooling is now more than just a thing. It’s now a big thing and it’s growing faster and larger than some folks probably ever imagined.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, many parents had to turn to remote learning via their local school district or private school as in-person classroom instruction shutdown.

However, when it was time for children to go back to school…reports indicate hundreds of thousands of parents across the nation decided to keep their kids at home…

The National Home Education Research Institute says two years ago, there were approximately 2.5 million students being homeschooled.  Today, that number is now at nearly 5 million…

The reasons are many. Some parents want their kids to learn from a faith-based curriculum while others believe their local schools have problems with indoctrination on issues like Critical Race Theory…

Yvonne Bunn, director of homeschool support and government affairs with Home Educators Association of Virginia, told CBN News…

“In Virginia alone, we have seen over a 48 percent increase in homeschoolers for the last school year…”

“I do think a lot of parents are going to continue homeschool. They’re not happy with what’s going on,” she said. “…We’ve been amazed by the number who want to continue to work from home so they can continue to teach their children.”…

Erickson also points to COVID-19 and how it has changed everything…

“Some of it is families realized in the pandemic…that they are perfectly fine living on one income,” Erickson continued. “They made cutbacks and are okay. Many families decided their kids are better off not in the woke public school system…”
