Did you know…Homeschooling enrollment is exploding!! Nationwide: Some 2 million students are taught at home. In North Carolina: More than 83,000 students were homeschooled in 2011. BTW: If current trends continue, homeschooling in North Carolina will push past private school enrollment over the next five to 10 years.
