As the criticism of the U.S. education system grows among parents, so does the appeal of homeschooling. Together with today's increasingly fast-paced, connected culture, this choice seems an almost natural one for many families. Though still a controversial and heated topic, the number of homeschooled children in America is growing rapidly.
