PODCAST:  Homeschool Graduate’s Journey through Harvard 

Homeschool graduate Ben Porteous was a student at Harvard University when Harvard Magazine published an article calling for a ban on homeschooling—a shocking idea from a school that has historically welcomed homeschool graduates. Join Jim Mason (HSLDA President) and Ben as they discuss Ben’s experience as a homeschool graduate attending the elite university. Ben shares how homeschooling fostered his love of learning languages and history, eventually earning him the honor of delivering the Latin Salutatory at Harvard’s 2022 commencement.

Let’s start with some homeschooling statistics

  1. Homeschoolers made up73% of all school-age children (K-12) in the U.S as of 2020/2021.
  2. There were 3.7 million homeschool students in the U.S at the end of 2020 and estimates show that the last two years homeschooling has increased at least 10% per year. That means an estimate of 5.5 million children are being homeschooled for the 2022/2023 is probably fairly accurate. However, the hard data has not been updated since 2018.
  3. A study led by Michael Cogan by the University of St. Thomas revealed that the homeschool graduation statistics are 10% higher than that of students from public schools.
  4. Homeschooled children score 15-30% higher than students in public schools in the standardized academic achievement exams. This is based on reports from The National Home Education Research Institute in 2015.
  5. The National Home Education Research Institute report shows that, irrespective of the parent’s educational level and financial level, homeschoolers can score well.
  6. The top reason for homeschooling is a concern about school environment.
  7. Homeschool students outperform institutional school students academically.
  8. 48% of homeschooling households have three or more children.
  9. The average cost of homeschooling is $700-$1,800 per student annually.
  10. Homeschooling saves about $56 billion of taxpayer money annually (probably more now).
  11. There are almost no studies being conducted on homeschooling best practices and outcomes. Statistics are few. Peer reviewed studies even fewer.
