All of these reasons were selected by over 65% of the participants. The reasons chosen
by fewer than 40% of the participants were to provide religious instruction, meet
unique needs, and accommodate a physical or mental health problem. In addition,
more than half of the participants identified and wrote additional reasons for their
homeschooling. To categorize the responses, they have been sorted into
categories. If a single written response included more than one category, it was counted
for each type it fits.
