Why Homeschool: The US spent an average of $8,701 per student on elementary and secondary education in 2005
Dr. Bill Bennett, ex-Secretary of Education, conservative commentator, and radio host, and author of many educational books, including "The Well Educated Child" said the following at a Homeschool Conference I attended, "my wife works in the Washington DC public school system, where they spend around $ 10, 000 per student per year. The Catholic schools in Washington do a better job with one third the administrators, and half the money. You parents do an even better job with less than $1, 000.
While this is true, I'm going to have to address the salary issue with my principal!
