The U.S. Department of Education (USDE) National Center for Education Statistics, (NCES) released in December 2008 a report entitled “1.5 Million Home Schooled Students in the United States in 2007” (by Stacey Bielick) in which the author estimates the number of home schooled students in the United States (i.e., home school population size) to be 1.28 to 1.74 million in spring 2007. Dr. Ray, of NHERI, on the other hand, estimates that there were more than 2.0 million K-12 home school students in the U.S. during the spring of 2008. Consistent with Dr. Ray’s estimates, the NCES researcher found that the home school population has grown about 8% per year during the 4 years since the NCES’s previous study.
