What’s scary is that, despite $10,000 per student average, ($14,000 in my state), classroom size of 20 (used to be more than 30 when I went to school), that kids consistently learn more home-schooled. I would guess that it is because the materials are standard, rather than the fad of the week pushed in schools, as well as teaching core subjects. Plus not having to worry about getting beaten up or being taught by a party animal B.A. with one year of actual work..My state had less than 45% of the time taught on core subjects in school, so they just changed the standards so no one knows the percent now.
