For a variety of reasons, some parents choose to educate their children at home as an alternative to public schools. As of spring 2007, about 1.5 million, or 2.9% of all school-age children, were homeschooled, according to the U.S. Department of Educationís Condition of Education, 2009. The homeschooled population was 850,000 in 1999 and 1.1 million in 2003.

Although every state allows some form of homeschooling, most states do regulate it in some manner.
