Abstract: Homeschooling has risen as an alternate to public education in the United States. Originally confined to fringe religious groups like the Amish, it has turned into a social phenomenon in America, including middle-class suburbanites and urban elites. Additionally, it has become a large commercial market that provides everything from school supplies tailored to the home-school market to conferences for home-school teachers.
