Homeschoolers and SAT scores

Ray and Eagleson found that there was no stastically significant difference in SAT performance between homeschoolers in states with low, moderate, or high levels of regulation. In fact, in every case, states with the highest levels of regulation actually had the lowest test scores (though not enough to make it statistically significant). This was true for states that hadn’t changed their laws in ten years and also for states who had not changed their laws for five years. Ray and Eagleson provide statistically-literate readers with all of the charts and explanation needed to give them confidence that the data is legitimate.
