What to Know: The U.S. Census Bureau reports a boom in homeschooling because of the pandemic.

The TPPF Take: The COVID-19 pandemic shows the need for more options for families.

“It should come as no surprise that more parents in all communities are choosing homeschooling,” says TPPF’s Erin Davis Valdez. “With many schools not offering full-time in-person options, many parents saw the benefits in taking more of a direct hand in their children’s education. Far from being a phenomenon confined to one socioeconomic group, the rates for homeschooling doubled overall, and the increase was five-fold among Black families.”
