Recent estimates put the number of homeschooled children in the U.S. at 2 million (although it is hard to determine the exact number since the methods for counting homeschooled children vary between states). This number is steadly growing as more children are homeschooled each year.

them to work for petty rewards--gold stars, or papers
marked 100 and tacked to the wall, or A's on report
cards, or honor rolls, or dean's lists or Phi Beta Kappa
keys--in short, for the ignoble satisfaction of feeling
that they are better than someone else."

you want to teach children to think, you begin by
treating them seriously when they are little, giving them
responsibilities, talking to them candidly, providing
privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers

job of teaching children to be infantile, dependent,
intellectually dishonest, passive and disrespectful to
their own developmental capacities."
