Abstract:
In 1995-96, the number of home-schooled children in North Carolina exceeded 13,000. Eventually a point is reached where parents of these children cannot instruct in advanced courses, such as chemistry and physics, and request local school systems to allow their children to attend part-time. Schools are not required to do this, either by state or federal law. North Carolina law does not prohibit this, allowing schools systems to decide requests on an individual basis.

Abstract:
Since 1983, public schools in North Carolina have experienced ten major reform efforts. These include the 1985 Basic Education Program, the Year-Round School Movement in 1989, the 1996 Charter School Legislation, and the 1996 ABC Plan. Critics say the state tries too many new programs and does not allow any of them enough time for proper evaluation. Williams and Scharer discuss each of the ten programs in detail.
