Homeschooling is the education of children at home or another place that is not a school. Homeschooling is typically conducted by a parent, tutor or online teacher.
Homeschooling and education by family members at home was a common practice for many years and in many cultures in the past. It declined in the 19th and 20th centuries as mandatory attendance laws began for schools. In the 1960s and 1970s, homeschooling became popular again as some people became dissatisfied with industrialized education.
