UNDATED (AP) – Some U.S. parents say they’re planning to continue to homeschool their children, even as schools plan to resume in-person classes. Some families who spoke with The Associated Press have children with special educational needs. Others seek a faith-based curriculum or say their local schools are flawed. The common denominator is that they tried homeschooling on what they thought was a temporary basis and found it beneficial to their children. The U.S. Census Bureau has confirmed the surge. It says the rate of households homeschooling their children rose to 11% by September 2020, doubling from 5.4% six months earlier.
