Recently, an article was released ranking states according to where it’s best for a child to live. With just a little digging, one can find the actual data from Children’s Defense Fund. If ever curious or second-guessing decisions to homeschool, simply look at the 2013 Kentucky facts:

  • The annual education expenditure per public school pupil is $8,957.
  • 64.5% of public school fourth graders cannot read at grade level, while 61.2% cannot do math at grade level.
    • Do you still feel like you’re banging your head against the wall in frustration because no progress is being made with your child, or is more progress evident than you realized?
  • 63.7% of public school eighth graders cannot read at grade level, while 69.3% cannot do math at grade level.
  • The average freshman high school graduation rate is 79.9%.

This is the most recent data, yet most is from 2010 and 2011. Now, what percentage of your family falls into the above categories? Although homeschooling is often (maybe usually) challenging, it definitely has its merits. No, homeschooling is not for everyone, and not everyone is successful at it, but if truly dedicated, with end goals in sight, parents can make a life-changing difference in their children’s lives.
