New research shows that home-schooling is the fastest-growing form of education in America.

It has been estimated that between 2 million to 2.5 million children are now home-schooled.  The study also showed that the percentage of children who receive their education at home jumped 74 percent over eight years.

According to the study, the numbers continue to be on an upward trend and predicted that by the year 2015, 5 million children will be home-schooled, which will account for one tenth of the school-age population.

"Home-schooling high school is no longer uncharted territory. There are a multitude of home-schooled graduates who are bearing fruit in the workplace, in the military, in their families, and in colleges across the country," a Home-School Legal Defense Association spokesperson said.

The findings are based on research by the National Home Education Research Institute and the federally funded National Center for Education Statistics.
