Colorado homeschool student growth

Kevin Torres:

“Colorado is representative of what we’re seeing across the country – which is families had to make a lot of hard decisions last year and some of them chose to homeschool. Either for family flexibility or disenchantment with how remote school was going or they didn’t like the hybrid model — there are a lot of reasons where homeschooling may have been a better fit during the pandemic,” said Emily Levitt, Vice President of Education for the Sylvan Learning Center in Denver.

When it comes to students who registered in online educational programs in our state, that figure jumped up by 43% over the last year to a whopping 32,000 students.
