Homeschooling rates across the United States over the last decade had hovered just around 3.3%, but that was until the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020. Since then, homeschooling has certainly been on the rise. Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau's experimental Household Pulse Survey, AAA State of Play created this infographic
to show how each individual state's homeschooling rates have changed as a result of the pandemic. Per the research, it was found that Alaska, with a 17.9% increase, saw the biggest jump in homeschooling over this time, with Florida (13.1%), Vermont (12.8%), Oklahoma (12.4%) and Mississippi (11.6%) being close behind. Not only was Alaska leading the rest of the country in terms of increases for homeschooling, but Alaska was the only state that saw a jump of at least 13.2% or higher. Only two states across the country saw decreases, which were Iowa (-0.6%) and Kentucky (-1.2%). Where did your home state fall on this list?
