Where home school students have been allowed to participate in sports their numbers have boomed.
BY THE NUMBERS
• 83,000: Estimated home-schooled students in Tennessee
• 1,500: Families in Chattanooga Southeast Tennessee Home Education Association, the main organization for home-schoolers in the Chattanooga area
• 50: Students in the group’s athletics programs five years ago
• 450: Students in its athletics programs today
Now as the state is about to allow home school student participate in in state school sports teams I expect the numbers of parents who home shool to boom.
