Posted August 10, 2019 17:16:31A new report from the National Association of Home Educators found that in the last two years, the number of home school students who enrolled in the online curriculum has increased by a whopping 35% in just five years.
In 2017, nearly half of the students in this online program took the online course and the majority of them were enrolled in kindergarten.
However, in 2019, nearly three-quarters of the home schoolers who enrolled online in kindergarten completed it.
In 2019, about one in four home schooled kids in kindergarten did not complete the online education course.
According to the report, home schooling students in kindergarten are learning in a more difficult environment than their peers in other grade levels.
The report also noted that home schooling is associated with a lower academic achievement.
In addition, home school curriculum reviews are less frequent than they were in 2016.
The report also found that home school curriculums are less rigorous than other grades and are not well aligned to academic standards.
As a result, home schools are having difficulty preparing their students for standardized testing.
In 2018, more than 50% of the children enrolled in a home school program were unable to pass the State’s Common Core exam in reading, while nearly half the children did not pass the test in math.
Despite the problems in the home schooling curriculum, the report recommends that home education programs should be required to meet standardized testing requirements.
