Arkansas has seen an increased interest in home schooling since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year the U.S. Census Bureau reported the percentage of households home schooling in Arkansas jumped from 6.8% in spring of 2020 to 10.3% by the following fall.

All told, as many as one in ten families in Arkansas home schooled their children during the 2020-2021 school year.

Since then, home schooling has remained popular even as the pandemic has subsided and schools have reopened.

For 24 years Family Council’s home school division, the Education Alliance, has supported home schooling in Arkansas, because it gives families the flexibility to provide the education that’s right for their children.
