Home schooled students on the rise

Posted:

(NBC News)-- The number of kids being home schooled continues to rise.

The Department of Education says about 1.5 million American children are home schooled.

That's up 74 percent since the department started keeping track in 1999.

Experts predict the number will rise as more parents are opting for non-traditional education for their children.
