Latinos account for only a small percentage—1.5%—of all homeschoolers, according to The National Center for Education Statistics. A number of factors may contribute to this small number. For starters, many Latinos aren’t aware of homeschooling as an option to tradition public education. Also, many Latino married couples often both work outside the home, making homeschooling impractical. The majority or 89% of homeschoolers are from two-parent households, and mothers account for 87% of homeschool instructors, staying home full-time to teach their children. Not surprising, given that it would be difficult for a single-parent to find the time to homeschool a child—which is not to say that it can’t be done; it’s just rare.
