    Another “home education is on the grow” article:

    Hammond is one of a steadily increasing number of Manitoba parents who opt to school their children at home.

    The number of students being home-schooled has been on a steady climb since the late 1980s, although they represent less than one per cent of those enrolled in the public system. The most recent figures show 1,661 Manitoba students from 833 families were registered for home-schooling last year, up from 392 students in 1988. This gradual growth followed a Canadian trend.

    No discouraging words are heard.
