Back in 2005 I wrote:

"In the last 30 years, increasing numbers of families in the United States have made the decision to educate their children at home. While the history of the homeschool movement is heavily themed with the idea that families choose to homeschool for Religious reasons, more and more families are also choosing to homeschool for academic reasons. It's not exactly new; up until 1850 most children in America were educated at home. Crowded schools, unsafe schools, poor academics and peer pressure that discourages a student from academic achievement have contributed to the plot of the homeschool story. Between two and three million children in the United States are learning at home. More and more we hear of families who are choosing homeschooling for academic reasons. A number of these families reveal that they are homeschooling gifted children. While the homeschool in general is an exciting place, the homeschool for the gifted student is extraordinary."
