Skip to comments.Hispanic Americans Turn to Homeschooling in Record Numbers Following Covid-Era School Closures
Posted on 06/13/2022 1:08:29 PM PDT by SwotSonOfSitetest
The growing legions of Americans turning to homeschooling after two years of on-again, off-again public education includes one group for whom the option is particularly challenging — first-generation immigrants.
According to recent Census Bureau data, about a quarter of homeschoolers in America are Hispanic, and 18.2 percent of Hispanic families homeschool their children. That’s up markedly from even six years ago, when 3.5 percent of Hispanic families were educating their children themselves at home.
First-generation immigrants, many of them with limited educational backgrounds themselves, make up a rapidly growing subset of that demographic.
“A lot of these are what we think of as nontraditional homeschoolers — people from low-income, immigrant backgrounds,” the Pacific Research Institute’s senior director of the center for education, Lance Izumi, says. “It kind of shatters that myth that this is basically only a middle-class or maybe a middle-class, white phenomenon.”

Illegals keeping their kids out of schools?
One of the best things we did....
Hispanics also love their children and don’t want them brainwashed by filthy commies running the Teacher’s Unions.
The rest of us need to do the same - or fight for Charter Schools - or better - for education vouchers. Vouchers so we can send our kids to the best schools this incentive will create.
“Illegals keeping their kids out of schools”?
You’re not the brightest bulb on the tree.
FFS you realize that there are shitloads more legal than illegal Hispanics in the US.
Secondly, they are rapidly becoming one of the most conservative groups in the US so it’s generally better to have them on our side than be assholes.
Good for you. Women look at me very funny when I congratulate
them for home schooling.
They have no idea how much better our society would be, if
everyone did that these days.
You know what? I always had a hunch these hispanic imports might end up conservative. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if all the illegal immigration eventually gives conservatives solid majorities for decades????
You’re not necessarily so correct. The census bureau estimates 61 million Hispanics in the US, without differentiating between legal and illegal. The oft-quoted 11/12 million figure being a massive fiction, there are probably closer to 40 million illegals in the country presently, with a clear majority of them being Hispanic.
Pinochet, Stroessner, etc
People forget history
This. I am VERY against all the illegals streaming over the border but I’d trade the white/black urban commie LGBT scum any day of the week for these Catholic, family oriented people.
We HS'ed in SoCal..and then in NE OK...
I think it’s because I explain my views on the importance of
it. It’s probably overboard, but I want others to realize
how important it is.
The family is the core, and taking charge of your own kids
and making sure they are safe and taught properly without
the Leftist agenda is so vitally important.
HS kids, the best citizens ever IMO.
And libs joined them, causing trouble.
It was very important to us.....and they are both professionals. In what they do.
That’s great. Kudos to you both.
