Abstract:
Dismayed by the public schools, many parents are finding an alternative in home schooling. Statewide, the number of children homeschooled in North Carolina has tripled over the last four years. Home-schooling parents say their children are excelling in an atmosphere where they work at their own pace, receive individualized attention, and are free from the distractions and bad influences of public schools. The pros and cons of homeschooling are discussed, along with stories from Triangle area parents who are homeschooling their children.

Abstract:
Many parents of children with autism move to Chapel Hill for the high reputation and performance the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School District has.

Many parents blame the district for failing to educate their children and preventing parents from advocating on their behalf. School officials contend that many of these parents have unrealistic expectations and want a level of education the public schools are not legally required and cannot provide.
