This is really no surprise to me for a number of reasons:
- Parents who have made the switch to alternative education are obviously quite invested and involved in their children’s education. This involvement and interest of course often results in greater support and positive reinforcement that will of course benefit the student.
- Homeschooled children tend to to be more flexible and adaptable which are desirable traits in education and learning.
- There are so many options for alternative schooling arrangements that a parent or guardian is bound to find one that matches their child’s learning style and personality. My two are in two different programs each one according to his own learning style. The public school environment is much more traditional and rigid, which may be great for some children but a setback for others.
- Individualized learning takes place with homeschoolers. As an educator I can tell you that any students who receives more one on one learning time in any environment most often performs better.
