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 today – Fraser Report
