Homeschooling Continues to Boom in Australia

By Stuart Chapman, Director of Homeschool Christian Academy and Homeschool WA

The number of students registered for home schooling grew by 13% nationally from 2014 to 2015 and again by 13% from 2015 to 2016. Numbers have grown nearly 70%, from 10,000 in 2011 to 17,000 in 2016.

This shows that homeschooling continues to be the fastest growing education demographic in the country, far outstripping population growth.

The number of students unregistered for home education is impossible to determine, but estimates vary from 10,000 to 50,000 children. I believe the figure to be around 15,000 students.
