The numbers of homeschoolers will probably never come close to the number of kids enrolled in publci schools because so many kids are being raised by single mothers and many more live with families where both parents must work full time in order to make ends meet.

But it is possible that enough parents will opt out of public schooling that it will force reforms. Many federal programs dispense cash based on the number of students who will benefit. Fewer students in public schools mean less money for the schools. If public schools are forced to really compete with homeschooled kids, it may improve those schools for all.

Or, the teachers unions will simply go to their state capitals and see about curtailing homeschooling - or eliminating it altogether. They are already trying to make it more difficult and the fact that they are not having much success says a lot about the political popularity of homeschooling.

Home schooling doesn't provide the mandated diversity education, you know on Gayism, birth control, sex education, integration, welfare living, free stuff like Obamaphones, the non-work ethic, etc.

Are you suggesting none of that crap is important to the education of a child..... You know the child may not grow up with the "proper social norms"
