At the recent CHEC homeschool conference, one of the days I conducted a brief 4-question survey to gather some more information about homeschool families. Here are the four questions I asked:
1. How many years have you been homeschooling?
2. What is the number one reason you homeschool?
3. What is your biggest fear or concern about homeschooling?
4. What are the age ranges of your children?
Each day this week I’ll post the conglomeration of answers that I received for one of the questions. I suspect the answers are pretty typical of the demographics of most homeschool conferences across the country. It was interesting to me that regardless of the length of time families had been homeschooling or the age ranges of their children, the reasons and concerns about homeschooling still tended to be pretty similar. You’ll be able to catch a glimpse of the specific responses this week.
