CTV, Fraser Report and Homeschooling

CTV came out today to ask us about homeschooling. Here’s what we said:

Did you know . . .

Modern-day home schooling has been around in Canada for 40 years?

More families are choosing it simply because it is possible and practical?

That you don’t need a lot of money or post-secondary to home school your children?

Home-educated students are more likely than their peers to go to college, university or other higher forms of education?

That home schooling has grown by 29% in Canada?

That home schooling save the provincial government more than 95 million dollars each year?

That private schools save another 145 million?

YUP . . . all true . . . read more about it in the new Fraser Institute report that came out todayFraser Report
