Common Core Leads More Parents to Homeschooling
Recently, USA Today explored the growing popularity of homeschooling, focusing on the northern New York City suburb of White Plains, where homeschool students have increased 31% since 2005.
Little surprise that one of the reasons cited for the rise in numbers is concern about the Common Core national standards.
“If you are home-schooling, you are completely out of the clutches of the Common Core,” said homeschool mom Arlene Figueroa.
The article also mentions how online resources “have revolutionized home-schooling.” Alpha Omega Publications is proud to be part of that revolution by offering new monthly and yearly Monarch Plans, giving homeschool families and individual students access to 50 online courses across grade levels to customize learning.
