As fall school plans remain uncertain, local homeschooling organizations are reporting a growing number of new, interested families. “We have seen quite an uptick,” said Bill Heuer, executive director of the Massachusetts Home Learning Association. The latest available data shows around 7,600 students are homeschooled in Massachusetts and 1,800 students in Rhode Island; both, less than one percent of the entire student population.
UK parents continue to struggle to balance work and homeschooling under new lockdown.
There are nearly 4,000 fewer students enrolled in Rhode Island public schools this year.
