The U.S. Census Bureau is assisting with a study for the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. In an effort to improve a web survey, we are specifically looking for parents of children homeschooled in the equivalent grades of K-12 to participate in a one-time voluntary web survey and provide feedback after taking it. 

Please note: This study is only for parents who homeschooled their children prior to the COVID19 pandemicIf you are currently homeschooling your child because your child’s typical school is closed due to COVID19, we are unable to use your participation in this study. 

To qualify, you must also live in the Maryland – Washington DC – Virginia area.
