Homeschooling in Japan and Taiwan is growing at an amazing rate. Today on Home School Heartbeat, Christopher Klicka joins Mike Smith to talk about homeschooling around the world.

    Mike Smith:

    Chris, both the press and the business community in Japan have been excited to encourage homeschooling. Why is that?

    Chris:

    Because homeschooling is a way for the business community to redeem the over 100,000 kids that are dropping out of public school each year in Japan. A business has started a national homeschool association to provide a support system for homeschoolers in Japan and for helping families learn how to homeschool, particularly their older kids who are being disgruntled with the public school system.

    The press is also very fascinated to learn more about homeschooling in America, because it is growing by leaps and bounds in Japan.

    Mike Smith:

    Homeschooling in Taiwan was recently legalized. How did that happen, Chris?

    Chris:

    There was a number of families who wanted to homeschool in Taiwan. They consulted with us and learned some information on the statistics on how well homeschoolers are doing, and they took those statistics along with some language that we provided them and went to their federal government. The government was very receptive, and a new policy was created, and homeschooling is legal and thriving in Taiwan.

    Mike Smith:

    Thank you, Chris. Next time, we'll talk about homeschooling in Australia.
