Abstract:

A growing number of American families are choosing to homeschool their children. While research evidence is limited, evaluations of student outcomes suggest that homeschooling is successful for participating students. Federal and state policymakers should therefore protect all families' right to educate their children at home and implement policies to enable more families to homeschool their children in the future.
