    Homeschooling in NC was up only 10.5% in the past school year. This was the smallest increase ever. Another interesting stat: the Wake g-schools now enroll fewer than 83% of eligible students. That’s ok, according to the edu-crats.

    “Obviously I feel we’re offering a superior academic program, and that’s reflected in our results,” [Wake Superintendent Bill] McNeal said. “People make decisions for various reasons. Our numbers continue to grow. Their numbers continue to grow.”

    Good spin. The g-school enrollment grew by 3000 students solely because of population growth. The percentage continues to drop precipitously. Edu-crats had not predicted that they would reach the 83% level until 2007.
