When it comes to the education of children, parents usually enroll their children in mainstream schools and in some cases private schools. However, there are a growing number of parents who feel they can offer their children a better education than the public or private school systems. These parents are joining the growing trend of families who have opted to home school their children.

As a recent research study, done by Dr. Brian Ray, shows: "On average, home schooler's outperformed their public school peers on standard achievement tests by 30 to 37 percentile points across the board on all subjects."("Home Schooling Achievement," pars. 1). To say the least, this is incredible data. As for college enrollment of home schooled children, it rates about the same as public schools, however, (as expected) home schooled children are scoring higher on college entrance exams, as research shows, "For example, the 2219 students reporting their home school status on the SAT in 1999 scored an average of 1083 (verbal 548, math 535),...
