Since 1999, homeschooling enrollment has tripled, and this trend is only showing signs of continued growth

Although today's 2.5 million homeschoolers may not seem like a large number, it's a remarkable figure considering that American homeschooling has only been legal in all 50 states since 1993

On this week's Mic'd Up, Michael Voris interviews Corey DeAngelis, director of school choice at Reason Foundation. 

For many years now, DeAngelis has been on the front lines fighting against the attempt to discredit homeschooling. As of late, he's been in a battle with Harvard, owing to the university's effort to smear homeschooling — especially a law professor's repeated calls for it to be banned

Studies consistently show that parents choose homeschooling due to the overall environment of other schools, the quality of academic instruction and the lack of moral instruction.  

When looking at test scores, homeschooled children consistently outperform the general population of students.

Looking at the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or the SAT, homeschoolers score about 72 points higher than the national average. 

Homeschoolers are still achieving well beyond their public school counterparts.

Turning to the American College Test, or the ACT, the national average is 21 out of 36, whereas homeschoolers are just under 23 out of 36. 

In 2009, The Home School Legal Defense Association commissioned a study that found that "Homeschoolers are still achieving well beyond their public school counterparts— no matter what their family background, socioeconomic level or style of homeschooling."

In regard to moral instruction, public school advocate John Dewey, known as the "father of American education," co-founded the atheistic American Humanist Association —its motto: "Good without a God" — and went on to serve as its first president.
