Inrepparttar 145929 biggest cities across America,repparttar 145930 statistics get even more startling. In Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and 16 other big cities, more than 1 out of 4 public-school teacher's kids attend private schools. In some cities, almost halfrepparttar 145931 public-school teachers do this. For example, in Philadelphia, 44 percent, and in Cincinnati, 41 percent of public-school teachers sent their kids to private schools.

Homeschooling --- A Superior Education For Your Child

Written by Joel Turtel

Home-schooling provides children with a superior education. Parents can quickly teach most kidsrepparttar basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic using excellent, creative, learn-to-read, or learn-math books, programs, or computer learning software. Once children become proficient readers, they can then study subjects they love in greater depth. If a child needs help on a special subject, parents can occasionally call in a tutor.

Many studies confirm that home-schooled kids learn more, learn better, and learn faster than public-school children. Christopher J. Klicka, author of "The Right Choice: Homeschooling," cites a nationwide study of more than 2,163 home-schooling families conducted in 1990 byrepparttar 145928 National Home Education Research Institute:

“The study foundrepparttar 145929 average scores ofrepparttar 145930 home school students were at or aboverepparttar 145931 80th percentile in all categories. This means thatrepparttar 145932 homeschoolers scored, onrepparttar 145933 average, higher than 80 percent ofrepparttar 145934 students inrepparttar 145935 nation. The home schooler’s national percentile mean was 84 for reading, 80 for language, 81 for math, 84 for science, and 83 for social studies."
