    The local paper here reports today that there 252 HEKs in the county. My two represent approximately 1% of the total. As an aside, I’d like to suggest that whoever wrote the hed probably should have paid more attention in math class.

    Home school numbers increasing…

    There are only 252 students approved for home-schooling this year.

    For the last three years, the number of home-schooled children has grown, peaking last year at 372 students, he said.

    Hmmm. Last year 372. This year 252. I’d say the numbers are decreasing. Let’s hope the editor wasn’t home educated.

    Does a 50% drop in HSers sound reasonable to you? I think there are more math problems here than just the reporter.
