Home-schoolers on the move

The Herald Bulletin has a Story that looks at home-schooling.

They say it is the fastest growing segment of education — growing from 7,251 students in 1997 to more than 20,000 students last year. But the students are rarely at home.

They say libraries often are a meeting place for the home-schoolers because they take the place of school libraries.

“”Home-schoolers come in and ask us things the same as a school librarian would get,” Campbell said. “We’ve got thousands of resources for them. We have many more volumes of books than a school library would. Their choices are a lot more diversified.”
