According to the 2017 EdNext Poll, 51 percent of parents support homeschooling, while just 29 percent oppose it. Almost three-quarters of respondents from the general public think school districts should be notified if parents intend to homeschool their children, however; 68 percent of parents feel the same way. In 2016, we found that teachers were just as likely to homeschool their child or send their child to a charter school as other parents were.
