“Intelligence is not predicted by one’s learning surroundings, but by the quality of their learning experience, be it in a classroom or a family room. Parental involvement plays a large role, but it is possible for parents of traditionally-educated students to be deeply involved in their child’s education, just as it is possible for a homeschooling parent to neglect aspects of their child’s education.” --Joseph Baker
Parental Involvement for Public School: 89%
Among K-12 students, the percentage with a parent or other household member who attended a general school or PTO/PTA meeting during the 2006-07 school year. Additionally, 65 percent had such a relative who participated in school fundraising and 46 percent who volunteered to serve on a school committee.

“ I agree it is a touchy subject, we had a teacher one year come to our co-op and thought she would find that most homeschooled because of religious reasons. Come to find out that was not high on the list. One thing I will say is my kids love to learn, they can make choices about their learning, we can slow down, speed up a topic and so on, it to me is more individualized than any teacher could be with my child. We do homeschool gym, art, science, and band. My kids know that I have no problem sending them to public school and we support our local school and the kids via fundraising and collections. I ask my kids if they want to go to school. We use all sorts of curriculum and can go far more in depth in areas that I feel I never did in school.” – Susan Bowser
“Much of the funding for public schools typically comes from local property taxes, leaving poorer districts with significantly lower-quality staff and facilities than wealthier districts. The table above shows how teacher quality drops at high-poverty schools, while the number of students who will grow up to live in poverty skyrockets from 4 percent to one in seven—even when controlling for individual ability and family home environment.”
Well, were all in this class correct? I believe we all know, but generally, you must have a bachelors degree to substitute a public school and to teach you must have a teaching license and possibly even a master degree depending on which field of interest you want to go into.
Earn four units of English;
Earn at least four units of mathematics which shall include algebra I, algebra II, geometry and another higher level course, or a four-year sequence of courses which contains equivalent content;
Earn at least four units of science including one unit of physics and one unit of chemistry;
Earn four units of social studies;
Earn three units of world languages (must include no less than two units for which credit is sought), i.e., three units of one world language or two units of two different languages;
Projected number of high school diplomas that will be awarded in the 2011-12 school year.
According to America’s Health Rankings
From 2004 to 2011 78.92 % of students in Ohio Graduate from high school
I cannot find home school statistics, mainly because in many states home teachers are not required to register with anyone. In Ohio they are required to register with a superintendant but I cannot find graduation rates. It is possible that the current Ohio graduation rates includes home schooled children.
The biggest topic of debate? Or just one of many!
For home schooling, students only need to score in the 25th percentile to be considered component.
