Homeschooling is the process of parents educating children in the home, and many families choose to collaborate via tutorials, co-operatives, and extracurricular leagues to enhance the home education experience. Enrollment in homeschool programs has nearly doubled from 1999 (0.9 million) to 2016 (1.7 million). More than 2 million children – or 3 percent of the American student population – are educated in the home. As shown on this map, all states permit parents to educate their children in the home.
