Distance to School

Families who live at a considerable distance from the local schools have homeschooled for decades. Many families who live in Alaska are second and third generation homeschoolers. But this also applies to many families who live in sparsely populated areas such as the states of Nevada, Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, Montana, Utah, Idaho, and the eastern parts of Washington, Oregon, and even California. In many cases, a trip to school can be 40 miles or more.

However, distance isn’t just measured in miles anymore. Especially in some suburban areas, traffic problems are getting so severe that a trip to school can take 30 to 45 minutes or longer. And the parents have decided that this isn’t worth the hassle.
