Home schooling continues to grow in North Carolina.
New figures estimate that there are more Homeschool students than private school students across the state. There were close to 61,000 home schools (with over 98,000 home-school students) in the 2013-14 school year…with a 27% increase from two years ago. Home schooling has steadily risen in North Carolina since it was legalized back in 1985 by the state Supreme Court.
